Fame is Hiring an Account Coordinator

Got 3-5 years under your belt (or let’s face it, soft pants drawstring)? Fluff up that resume like the job-nailing pillow it is and send it our way. The gist of the role: Admin support for our Account Director and CEO – both genuinely amazing people who excel at expressing appreciation for a job well done. A few key things we consider non-negotiable: Impressive (borderline annoying) level of organization and detailed-ness. Enviable Keynote/PPT skills. More ‘we’ than ‘I’ mindset. Gold-star multi-tasking prowess. Solid biz writer. Grammar/proofing ninja. We’re an EOE, ergo account coordination skills are paramount, but actual physical coordination is a non-factor.
