Innovation as a job

As you may (or may not) know, I’ve been one of the Innovation (Design Thinking) coaches for McClatchy the past couple of years. I’m stepping away from that although still on call if they need me. In particular, I told them to let me know if they need me to sit in on a Design Review, have research needs or have a project in the Kansas City area.  Also, I’ve told them I’m available to help out at this fall’s Innovation Academy in Boise, Idaho.

Meanwhile, they’ve added a couple full-time members to the team, a couple new coaches (that are doing this on top of their day jobs, like I did the last couple years) and now, they’re looking for an intern.  So, if you know any college students looking for internships in Raleigh, these links are both about an internship with McClatchy’s innovation team: http://www.careerbuilder.com/job/JJ56RN712GVFRLD2P5B

Plus, they’re going to actually be looking for research assistance (possibly hiring a Research Analyst for their team next year) so let me know if you have good leads for them, especially in the Raleigh market.

Digital Ad Agency positions

Do you (or someone you know) work in digital advertising … or want to do so?  If so, it might be worth taking a look at these positions we’re opening up for a digital ad agency.

I work for excelerate digital, which is a national digital advertising agency owned by McClatchy (a national media company which is probably best known for its newspapers in 30 markets, including The Sacramento Bee, The Kansas City Star, Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Charlotte Observer, Raleigh News & Observer and the Miami Herald) but is also a strong digital player.

  1. Operations Manager: link here
  2. Media Strategist: link here and also this one, which is called Media Specialist II but is actually a Media Strategist
  3. Media Specialist: link here – (think more like a junior media strategist position)
  4. Display Specialist: link here 
  5. Digital Marketing Analyst: link here (this is part of the Marketing Research team and you’d get to work with me)
  6. Reporting Specialist (opening soon)
  7. PPC Specialist (opening soon)

Here are a couple of videos to give you an idea of our company culture and the type of people you’d be working with:

Please note that the majority of the excelerate digital support positions are based in Raleigh but, for the right candidate, we allow some employees to work in remote locations; i.e., the excelerate marketing research team has 2 in KC (including me) plus 1 in Charlotte and 1 in Raleigh.

If you apply, please let me know and/or let them know I referred you for the position.
