The cameras were on last month at the Idaho Media Professionals event: Idaho Advertising Executives and the Art of Persuasion.
Drake Cooper in Boise has an opening for an Account Manager.
Although the job description is trying a little too hard to be clever, it appears that they’re looking for someone who is able to do a little bit of everything – from account management to strategy to making sense of all that is changing in the marketing and advertising world. Simple, huh?
Wirestone in Boise has an opening for a Motion Graphics Artist. This person should have experience with, and a solid working knowledge of the standard tools of the trade, including After Effects, Final Cut Pro, DVD Studio Pro, and Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator).
Zeta Interactive in Boise (formerly Temel) has an opening for a Programmer. This person will develop the back end components of web-based projects and applications, and should have experience in the standard laundry-list of languages, applications, etc.
Zeta Interactive in Boise (known as Temel in another life) has an opening for a Designer. The candidate should have 2 – 5 years of experience, and be able to work on both online and offline mediums.
Drake Cooper in Boise has an opening for a Brand Ambassador. This is the first person that someone sees when they visit the agency, and the last one they see on their way out.
From the job description on the Drake Cooper website:
The Brand Ambassador single-handedly directs front desk operations – greeting clients in person or on the phone, from CEOs to interns with a warm welcoming persona and brilliant charm. This is a great job for someone wanting to launch a famous career in advertising, PR, online or offline marketing or the like.
Full details about the position are available here.
The guest speaker at this event will be Rob Spear, Athletic Director at the University of Idaho. Rob will be talking about strategic positioning utilizing PEAC Performance, and how to position an organization to meet the competitive demands in any industry.
Costs are $10 for members, $15 for member guests and $25 for non-members. As an added bonus, however, any U of I alumni who are not members of the Magic Valley Ad Fed will receive the member guest price. RSVPs are due by June 11th to Melissa Crane at 208-308-0488 or via email.
Earlier this month, the Idaho Chapter of the AIGA was recognized as an official chapter by the powers that be in New York. It is the organization’s 60th chapter, and by all accounts is going to be a very active organization.
Congratulations to all who worked so hard to make this happen.
