Big plus if you have worked with political clients or on political campaigns in the past, as you will be working at the speed of politics! You can think on the fly and outside the box about paid-media strategy. You have zero fear of running multiple large client accounts, and you can proactively identify client issues in a timely manner.

Most importantly, you’re excited to come onboard a small but mighty agency and join a team of talented colleagues.
