***  From Joseph Klem:

 

Hi, Ned.  Three years ago, I found my current job via JOTW, and I’ve “paid it forward” a few times since then, listing new positions as they become available in our communications team.  Here’s another – thanks in advance for posting!

 

Joe Klem

Urban Land Institute

 

25.)  Director of Online Strategy, Urban Land Institute, Washington, DC

 

If this sounds like the coolest job, that’s because it is!

 

The Urban Land Institute (ULI) is looking for a resourceful, persistent digital communicator to join our growing online team.  In the past two years we’ve launched an online magazine, replaced our search engine, and this summer we’ll be launching a redesign of our primary web site, ULI.org.

 

ULI creates compelling content every day in cities across the U.S., Europe and Asia, as our members gather to share ideas and best practices for what makes cities thrive.  We publish books and reports, bestow honors and awards, and convene expert panels with advice on how cities can tackle today’s challenges  — and tomorrow’s.

 

With these outstanding people, stories and conversations as your raw material, you’ll coordinate the optimal timing and placement of web content on ULI’s web sites and online channels.   Think of the position as part content strategist, part content marketer, and part curator. It’s a brand-new position, so you’ll have the opportunity to help define the role and how it functions within ULI.

 

This could be the job for you if:

 

•         You copy-edit signs and billboards as you pass them.

 

•         You get jazzed by scoring 50 points on the “Flesch Reading Ease” scale for a piece you’re writing or editing.

 

•         For the subject line of an email, you can slot the key message into those precious few characters that actually display in an iPhone’s inbox.

 

•         You’ve managed to convince skeptical content owners and subject matter experts that “everybody” is not a real target audience, and that all content should be tailored to specific audiences that are well defined and understood.

 

•         You get the fact that a photo of 12 people standing side-by-side is a photo of NOBODY when it’s sized down for most web templates, and the unobtrusive tripod at the back of the meeting room will NOT get you the quality of audio or video you need for web delivery.

This might NOT be the job for you if:

 

•         You’re used to having  100 percent control over the timing, format and placement of web content.

 

•         You believe it should be somebody else’s job to chase down details such as photo permissions, link swaps with partner organizations, or release forms from people you videotape.

 

•         You think that once you’ve put somebody’s name next to a task on a mini-project plan, they shouldn’t need an occasional reminder or help to get it done on time.

 

•         You think a managing editor is only needed at a newspaper.

Read the full job description at:

http://www.uli.org/LearnAboutULI/JobsAtULI.aspx

 

To apply, send your resume and brief cover letter to jobs@uli.org. Be sure to highlight your experience coordinating the content contributions of other people across an organization.  Tell us about the tools you used for tracking and scheduling, the challenges you faced, and how you overcame those challenges.
