Job Opening: Underwriting Representative

Yes, this is a break from the norm when it comes to job listings.  Boise State Public Radio is a great organization in my opinion, and one worth supporting — and in this case it means doing so by giving their job opening a little more visibility.

Boise State Public Radio has an opening for an Underwriting Representative.  From the job listing:

Boise State Public Radio invites interested applicants for the position of Underwriting Representative to become a part of our public radio team. Under the direction of the Corporate Support Manager, the Representative has a highly visible position and will act as one of the station’s ambassadors to the business community including advertising agencies and media buyers. Primary responsibility includes securing financial support for Boise State Public Radio programs, special events, challenge grants and local program production. The Representative will develop and maintain sales accounts, including targeting markets, initiating sales calls, sales appointments, presentations, prospecting, proposals, closing the sales and customer relations.

Full details about the position, including how to apply, can be found in the original job listing.

The Not-So-Terrible Twos for SOVRN Creative

Our friends over at SOVRN Creative celebrated their second anniversary recently, and shared a few highlights from the past two years, including:

  • Joe has learned more about trash and recycling, water conservation, wastewater management, and nursing than he ever thought he would. Unless you want to incur his wrath, don’t throw away anything that can be recycled. And unless you’ve got a spare hour, don’t mention anything about wastewater or Steven Seagal.
  • For our work in 2009, we earned a Silver Addy and a Gold Rockie for Rapture in Six Cantos, Silver Rockies for both the Parallels video and the Wastewater 2020 video, an Impact Excellence Award for Curb It, and a bunch of Citations for Excellence. Pretty cool, especially since we submitted 5 pieces and received 10 awards!
  • For our annual board meeting, we took a fishing trip. It got pretty dicey at moments, especially since Joe out-caught Philip, the accomplished fisherman. It made it worse that Joe was borrowing Philip’s equipment and hadn’t been fishing for over 20 years. Brian managed to catch quite a few silver Natty Lights.

Whether you want to call it a birthday, an anniversary, or just a milestone — congratulations are in order to Brian, Joe and Philip for all the success they’ve had so far, and what we’re sure will be much more still to come.

They’re in good company too, joining the likes of Mitchell + Palmer and Red Sky Public Relations, who also celebrated their second years in business this spring.
