Motivated Ad Sales Rep

February 8, 2013
Job ID: 1459797


Exciting things are happening in our part of the Mississippi Delta. Revitalization efforts are at an all-time high, Blues music tourism is growing at a rapid rate and new business and industry are making their way to town. 2012 was a huge year for growth and we're expecting even more in 2013. These reasons have prompted the Clarksdale Press Register, a bi-weekly community newspaper, to expand our advertising sales team and bring in a new face to handle an established account list and help us bring in some new customers as well.

Ideally, our newest team member will have a positive record of sales achievement and be able to work independently while managing a variety of tasks at once and working in a deadline-driven environment. You will be responsible for selling newspaper, magazine (quartely) and internet advertising along with other innovative marketing and branding products.

This full-time position offers a competitive base salary with a bonus structure that could easily allow the right candidate to make $40K-plus per year. The right candidate manages his/her time wisely, is extremely organized and personable. We are looking for someone with at least 1-2 years of sales experience (work in the newspaper industry preferred), that has reliable, insured transportation and a clean record with the DMV. Preference will be given to local/regional candidates and relocation expenses are negotiable for the right person.

Clarksdale is known for its local live music and Blues festivals that attract hundreds of thousands of tourists each year, and its Southern hospitality and laid back style of life. If you're interested in this position, send a resume and cover letter to Matt Killebrew at
