Comic Book Jobs: ReedPOP
We live in a world where there’s almost a comic book convention every weekend. (And some smartypants producer should put together a reality show based around that.)
One of the biggest and best convention organizers is Reed Exhibitions. Their ReedPOP division puts on the New York Comic Con, The Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo, PAX, Star Wars Celebration, The UFC Fan Expo, and “other events in the pop culture world.”
Now they’re looking for a Digital Sales Executive. This is a sales job and you’ll be expected to sell “the ad inventory across ReedPOP's family of show sites as well as creating and selling additional online products.”

So if you’re “a professional both with experience attracting, maintaining, and growing a client list in the digital space as well as a professional with an appetite for creating a strategy for monetizing existing digital assets (blog posts, tweets, etc) and developing new content and products (podcasts, interviews, live streams, etc.) with an eye on profit” you’ll fit right in.
The job is in Norwalk, CT, a nice little town that’s about a 45-minute commute from New York City.
There will be existing clients, “but the majority of this position's customers will be new customers” brought in by you. So you’ve got a lot of work ahead of you. Lots of qualifications to fit yourself into, but an important one is this: “Travel as required, approximately 20-40 days a year. And, you must have a level of humility and patience.”
So I’m out.
Good luck, job seekers!
