Advertising/Marketing: Smith Content

Part-time Intern position as Administrative/Marketing Assistant

The position of Administrative/Marketing Assistant at Smith Content requires excellent writing, proofing and editing skills, as well as superb organizational, time management, interpersonal and problem-solving skills. As Smith Content is a marketing communications firm, administrative/marketing assistants must have an understanding of and appreciation for marketing and business.

Administrative/marketing assistants serve as the primary contact for all scheduling matters, have general responsibility for the up-keep of contact management and sales support systems (data entry and management). They also aid in the coordination and implementation of marketing and public relations campaigns, research a variety of marketing and sales related subjects and perform other various office duties. The position requires a high attention to detail and the ability to multi-task and be flexible. The ability to work well with others in a team environment as well as showing individual leadership and initiative is also important.

A successful administrative assistant will be comfortable working on a variety of projects simultaneously and must display two seemingly opposite forces in their behavior: a desire to produce tangible results quickly, counterbalanced by an equally strong drive for accuracy. Administrative assistants must be creative persons who focus on projects with a considerable planning ability, but not to the end that planning inhibits action. Other personal strengths include:

• Attention to key directives and standards
• Making quick decisions and focusing on results
• Concentrating on key details
• Taking initiative and responsibility
• Thinking analytically, weighing pros and cons
• Being diplomatic with people
• Solving problems

We are looking for someone with a BA in English or Communications (or a related
degree), or near the completion of one of these or a similar degree. This person should be very interested in marketing, communications, public relations, and business. Candidates should be able to demonstrate current capabilities that are comparable to our professional standards and live according to values that match those of our company.

This is a great opportunity for a person looking to get into marketing!
