2.  WOW...AN INTERNSHIP OPP NOT TO BE MISSED!!

Maxifier (www.maxifier.com) is currently looking to hire a MARKETING INTERN and perhaps one in account services.

Maxifier was born from publishers' need to understand the depth and value of their ad display inventory.  As the matrix of delivery options grew increasingly complex during the last decade, the management of inventory became impossible. Not only were ad ops professionals challenged with delivering on advertiser commitments without the tools to properly size their active inventory, but they lacked the tools to accurately determine the size and value of the inventory they were going to have, too.

Maxifier is a privately held company entirely focused on ad inventory optimization.  Their  core product, adMAX, as been firmly established as the world’s most advanced Advertising Optimization Engine. Confirming their position as the world leader in campaign optimization, Maxifier was awarded the “Top Ad Technology Platform” award at the 2010 AOP Digital Publishing Awards.

Today, Maxifier continues to push the optimization envelope.  Operating on three continents, our campaign optimization tools manage more than 1 billion impressions through a list of clients that includes The Guardian, Bauer Media, IPC Media, Forbes.com, BlogHer and monster.com. 

At Maxifier they believe that an intern will rise to his/her level of competency.  The more that one are able to do, the more one will do; not the quantity of work but  rather the importance of the projects they are given. Their goal with each internship is that the intern will lead to full time employment once [they have] graduated. 

The intern/student's major is not as important as the qualities they possess. A responsible, self starter that takes pride in his/her work are greatly valued and work to their advantage.  A person who, that when all go home, reviews things one more time, not because they have to, but because its who they are.  A person who is motivated, curious and interested in learning and doing their absolute best is also our best candidate.

Marketing Intern responsibilities:
•    Assist marketing in B to B communications, PR, web updates, digital listings
•    Evaluate trade event involvement: sponsorship, speaking engagements, participation
•    Assist in developing sales materials: case studies, presentations, sell sheets, etc 
•    Involvement in issuing weekly status reports
•    Ability to work comfortably with data and interpretation of data
•    Superb Microsoft Office skills necessary

This is a paid internship involving 20-24 hours per week.  They are looking for an intern whose schedule enables a full day’s work rather than piecemeal times over the course of the week. This way they will have a continuous presence and to their benefit, will be given more meaningful projects. 

Please have cover letters and resumes sent to Erin Alex at erin.alex@maxifier.com. subject line: marketing intern candidate
