Craigslist Job Posting – Advertising Media Buyer

From the Boise Craigslist website: Advertising Media Buyer

An interesting little bit that I picked up on from this post — they’re looking for someone who has the “ability to engage in high-level negotiations with media sales representatives, utilize market and media research, work with basic media software…” However, in the “Compensation” field at the bottom of the page is listed as “Entry Level.”

To me, that says that the employer (whomever they may be), wants to find an experienced media buyer, but they’re only willing to pay an entry level wage. In today’s job market, I just don’t see that working out very well for them. Sure, they might catch someone just out of school, but I’d think its the wrong time of year to take that approach.
