Organization Overview

The Pew Research Center (Pew Research) is a nonpartisan “fact tank” that provides information on the issues, attitudes and trends shaping America and the world. It does so by conducting public opinion polling and social science research; analyzing news coverage; and holding forums and briefings. It does not take positions on policy issues. Its work is carried out by a “Core” administrative and publishing unit and these seven projects:

• The Pew Research Center for the People and the Press (people-press.org) led by Andrew Kohut

*** From Edward M. Bury, APR:

Hello Ned:

Here's a Director of Marketing position in Chicago. I applied for this job and had an interview, but they re-posted it yesterday. Hope it proves beneficial to someone.

Keep up the great work. My position was eliminated two months ago, but I'm getting project work while I search for a full time position in Chicago. I remain confident the market for communicators will turn around in 2010. (Hopefully sooner.)

2.) Director of Marketing, Jellyvision, Chicago, IL

We are looking for a Marketing Wiz to help Jellyvision drum-up clients for our agency and healthcare product businesses. Our Marketing Director will focus on two areas:

• Communicating what we do, how we do it, and how it can help businesses in a manner that is compelling, refreshing and clever enough to encourage prospects to pick up the phone and call us.

• Occasionally helping our actually quite dreamy list of clients drive traffic to the work we do for them

More specifically, you will:

• Help cement our strategy, positioning, and branding so that we’re all marching to the same beat.

• Create a marketing plan that understands and segments our prospective buyer segments’ market size, attitudes, behavior, and potential profitability.

• Employ such tactics as email, blogging, co-marketing, SEM, SEO, channel partnerships, and PR (although we’re looking to you for the exact plan) to raise awareness for Jellyvision’s offerings and to generate and nurture leads for our biz dev pipeline.

• Own our web site and the strategy and approach for making it rock.

• Generate external communications – case studies, white papers, website content, blog content (both posting on ours and commenting on others’), etc. as well as materials for partners and prospects that further develop Jellyvision’s position as a thought leader in our industry.

• Manage the marketing budget like a company P&L, with a clear projection and measurement of ROI for each effort to maximize customer value, while keeping costs of acquisition as low as possible.

• Effectively pitch and place stories, as well as design PR campaigns and represent the “voice” of Jellyvision through active PR programs and participation.

• Continue to develop Jellyvision’s client integration competencies in the areas of in-bound traffic generation and lead nurturing.

• Oversee comprehensive business reviews that analyze the company/brand strengths and weaknesses and category/competitive/consumer opportunities and threats.

• Report to the President and work closely with the VP of Business Development, Director of Analytics, and the writers and artists who will serve as creative resources for your efforts.

Jellyvision’s Marketing Director MUST:

• Have demonstrated success in creating and executing detailed marketing plans.

• Be able to write and talk well. Seriously, your written and oral communication skills should be really outstanding. We’re not just looking for clarity, we’re seeking a refreshingly conversational tone from someone who can, from time to time, bring “The Funny.”

• Have strong business acumen and be a strategic and creative thinker.

• Have full use of both your right and left brain. You’ll need to rock the cost-per-click and spreadsheet the ROI analysis, but also “get” the fuzzier aspects of marketing a marketing company to marketers and be a fountain of great new ideas for marketing campaigns and approaches.

• Possess mad people skills. You’ll need great client management/customer service experience. You’ll need to build relationships and interact with clients, prospects, and media outlets in a way that projects Jellyvision’s sense of fun paired with the unmistakable je ne sais quoi that reeks of hard-core competence.

• Be a roll-up-your-sleeves kind of person. We have a very entrepreneurial, get-it-done culture that takes pride in our strong work ethic and low tolerance for micromanaging or posturing. To be direct, bureaucrats and middle managers need not apply.

• Be a student of internet marketing and emerging media.

• Own at least one black turtleneck… or just have great creative instincts.

• Organize like you’re Martha Stewart. (It’s a good thing). You’ll need to do high quality work and maintainyour attention to detail under deadline.

• Appreciate the Web (and media in general) like a fine wine or a FlufferNutter® sandwich. The Web is constantly evolving and so is the way people are using it. What we do is part psychology and part userinterface design. The more you understand the conventions and rules of the Web, the better you’ll be able to help us know when to follow those rules… and when to break them.

• Have a sense of humor. (It just makes you more fun to work with.)

A Marketing Director candidate would ideally have experience with:

• Web analytics and other tracking tools (Omniture, Google Analytics, Hitbox)

• Agency new business development – Understanding how to find, woo, and win new business while keeping current clients more than satisfied. Simple enough, right?

Anything else?

Yes. We only hire nice, bright, funny people who are willing to work hard. Jellyvision is a group effort and our Marketing Director must be capable of working collaboratively with creative, technical, and external client types.

All of us at Jellyvision share a commitment to excellence and a desire to work in a comfortable, friendly

atmosphere (if you bring in cookies, make sure to bring enough for everyone… maybe something with mint).

Seems like a lot, huh? Well, it is, but it comes with some perks! Such as…

• Competitive salary, options and full benefits

• Some flexibility in hours. We say “some” because in a position like yours, people need to be able to count on finding you at certain times, but we’re willing to work out a schedule that meets your needs.

• Casual dress. Come in a sweatshirt, jeans, whatever… like everyone else here.

• Creative work environment. We are lucky to work in a place that is full of intelligent, talented and innovative folks. Although often the place is deathly quiet (we're a focused bunch), this is punctuated with hilarious outbursts and general merriment, which makes for a nice way to spend the day…unless you're, like, allergic to fun.

• Free eats. We have a stocked kitchen that pretty much guarantees you breakfast, snacks, lunch and snacks again.

• Easy transportation. We’re really close to the “L” and the Halsted (#8) bus line, and we have free parking.

• Did we mention our free yoga class? An amazing instructor comes right to our office. Completely subsidized by Jellyvision and heavily optional, btw. (We even got written up in Yoga Journal… not because we’re any good at yoga, mind you. They just thought we were funny.)

*** This is your Job of the Week e-mail newsletter, a cooperative

service of professional communicators providing mutual support to one

another. The JOTW serves 11,297 professional communicators.

Your cooperation is requested. Please send job opportunities to share

with all JOTW members to lundquist989@cs.com.

Help me out. If you send a job listing, be sure it has contact information. I would prefer not to have to spend time to research the job to find out how to apply. Or where a job is located. If you are forwarding a job listing, particularly one that has been forwarded a few times, please clean it up so I don't have to delete all those little arrows and carriage returns. Also, a highly formatted listing has to be taken a part piece by piece to put it into our simple format. If you could do that first it would help me and it improves the chance of a listing getting published. When I'm in a hurry, which is almost always, I sometimes will defer a listing that needs a lot of work, and might not get to it at all. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

To subscribe, or to add a new e-mail address for your subscription, send

a blank e-mail to:

To unsubscribe: JOTW-unsubscribe@topica.com.

To change your address, do both. I can't do it for you.
