Client-Side Job Openings: University of Idaho

The University of Idaho has a couple of marketing-related job openings that are worth making note of:

Senior Director of MarketingUniversity Advancement: “The Senior Director of Marketing oversees the integrated marketing/communications, brand management, and creative development activities of the University, with special emphasis on the future student, parent, alumni, and donor audiences.”

Director of MarketingAthletics: “The Director of Marketing represents the Athletics Department in all Marketing issues and directs all efforts relating to the exposure and promotion of all aspects of the University of Idaho Athletics programs to all our constituency groups including local groups, state group and national groups.”

These two positions were originally spotted on the Pullman/Moscow Craigslist site, but you can also find them on the University’s Employment Services page as well.

Coffee Morning Reminder and Location

Just a reminder that this month’s Coffee Morning is coming up on this Friday morning, July 25th.

The new location for this month’s gathering will be at Thomas Hammer on the corner of 8th and Bannock in downtown Boise.

I’ve heard from a few people that they will be in Sun Valley for the Idaho State Broadcaster’s Association Annual Convention, but to those who aren’t making the trip, you are welcome to join us for some coffee and conversation.

Where’s That Line Between Reporting and Opinion Again?

Something about the Idaho Business Review’s cover story this week about “Greenwashing” just rubbed me the wrong way.

Maybe it’s the interviews that seem to end with more questions than answers.

Maybe it’s because Simon Shifrin takes a residential developer, and their agency, to task in a thinly veiled ‘you’re not being open and honest’ sort of way about their business motivations. Let’s not even get into the quoting (somewhat out of context) from the agency’s website, without any actual contact with the agency itself.

Or it could just be the “me too” reporting — writing about “green” activities, environmentally friendly stories and such is all the rage these days, so if the IBR doesn’t cover it, they must be behind the times.

This, my all accounts, is much more of an op/ed piece than business reporting. And I don’t think I’m alone in that opinion. Rick Carpenter, Robb Hicken et. al., you shouldn’t have let this story out the door the way it was published.

Of course, I could just be way off base. Been known to happen before…

Oh, and by the way Simon, it’s Stoltz Marketing Group, not Stolz Marketing Group.
