Help Wanted

I’m looking for a Content Manager to work with me at BFG Communications in Hilton Head. If you’re an outstanding writer with an ever better attitude, and you want to live by the beach, let’s talk.
Here’s the classified I’m running on our agency blog, Talent Zoo, Craig’s List and CreativeCoast.org:

Content Manager
You soak up pop culture like free beer at a backyard party. You recall names, dates and places faster than a game show contestant. You can name all the sub-genres of hip hop, indie and electronic and pull samples from your pod. Tattoos don’t scare you, although yours might scare others. You’re still looking for that perfect fit in advertising or journalism, and despite a touch of cynicism, you believe that your dream job is out there waiting for you. That you’re a prolific writer goes without saying. That you’d like to make a decent living also goes without saying. If this sounds like you, please send a compelling cover letter, resume and your three best writing samples to David Burn at dburn@bfgcom.com.

If you’re wondering how “content” differs from “copy,” think of it as journalism first and ad copy second. In this job you will not be making ads, you’ll be researching and writing stories that appear in our clients’ web properties, newsletters, zines, etc.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am now head of brand strategy and creative direction at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
