Local Designer (Part Time to Full Time)
PLEASE DO NOT APPLY TO THIS POSITION WITHOUT SENDING LINKS TO A DIGITAL PORTFOLIO.
Yes, we’re hiring a designer, but we’re looking for something of a “hybrid” designer. We are flexible on the exact combination of skills, but video skills are important (and that’s why they are listed first). Ideally, you will be able to demonstrate skills in several of the following areas:
- video production with Adobe Premier or Final Cut
- graphic design, using InDesign
- photo editing, with Photoshop
- web design with WordPress
- email marketing with Constant Contact or Emma or Mailchimp or Jangomail
- survey design with SurveyMonkey
- social media marketing (don’t get too excited – that’s our lowest priority!)
I know, it sounds like we’re asking for the moon. But here’s the good news: You don’t need a lot of experience. What you DO need is talent. And that’s why we want to see samples of your work. Several choice links will do. Or a personal website. Or a PDF portfolio. You choose.
Okay, here’s where it gets tough again… You have to be willing to work hard and you have to want to work with a small group of dedicated people who’ve built successful marketing careers.
One more thing. You have to like dogs. But hey, who doesn’t like dogs.
MarketPoint is a strategic marketing firm serving Business-to-Business, Education, and Nonprofit clients. (We’re not an ad agency or a design firm, so if that’s where your heart resides, please save us both time and keep moving.)
At MarketPoint, you will work alongside principals and senior consultants — all highly accomplished branding, communications, and marketing professionals — supporting our work with clients in the B2B, Education, and Nonprofit spaces. We will expect you to have solid, business writing skills – composing logical and grammatical letters, outlining processes, etc. And you’ll need to know your way around Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel.
There isn’t a better place to start (or advance) your career. So what are you waiting for? Send your resume and a link to that portfolio.
Job Type: Contract
Required education: Bachelor’s degree
- Video Editing / Production: 1 year
- CSS: 1 year
- Graphic Design: 1 year
- Web Design: 1 year
To apply, send your cover letter, resume, and a link to your design portfolio, to firstname.lastname@example.org or HERE.
A Word from the Principals
If you have talent, drive, and a commitment to continual improvement, we’d really like to see you join the team. So read the position descriptions carefully and please follow instructions. Applicants without a current resume (and portfolio link, if you’re in design or video) will be rejected. Please respect our time by not calling our office. If you have submitted a resume and cover letter, you will get a response by email, whether yes or no. If you do not get a chance to interview, we apologize – but we receive a lot of inquiries. Please don’t get discouraged; if you are rejected for one job, you may be qualified for another position in the future. Above all, don’t ever settle for a job you don’t want (even here): It will only stifle your spirit. Best of luck in your pursuit!
