Find What You Are Good At That You Love To Do

Evaluate the environment in which you enjoy working and the types of industries, technologies, and clients. Assess the work and specific tasks that you enjoy. Search your strengths to match the tasks you enjoy with those at which you excel.

Richard Nelson Bolles wrote several excellent books, especially "What Color Is Your Parachute," that helps you assess your ideal career. Look for a recent edition.

MediaFirst careers focus primarily on business-to-business (B2B) promotion of technology solutions.

Quality Is Conformance To Expectations

Our clients typically want to reach audiences of prospects, customers, prospective and current employees, analysts, industry associations, alliance partners, and sources of funding or buyout (exit). We promote firms to consumer audiences, especially when there is a technology angle. Broadly, we cover telecommunications, the Internet, information technology (IT), and supply chain; whether equipment, software, or services.

The technology focus means that clients expect us to have or develop a clear understanding of their business, markets, and competitive landscape. We understand our clients' customers in order to write in words that resonate with the target audience.

MediaFirst's flexibility supports dedicated, effective professionals. We believe that careers are more than just jobs.

Today's employment climate requires that employers and employees respect mutual goals and needs. If in your job search, you seek a flexible opportunity, we offer flexibility to reliable employees and contractors, such as the freedom to telecommute. We pragmatically focus on results, in ways similar to the technique known as Results Only Work Environment (ROWE). The business culture reflects our effort to best balance the needs of the client with those of employees or contractors, within a unique, virtual company model. Meeting client demands is expected, but considerable personal or family flexibility may be available.

Example postings, updated 10 March 2020: 

  • Assignment Editor: we are considering hiring an assignment editor to handle and balance the writing workload among employees and contractors. This person would be responsible to handle the editing of written work produced in-house before it is delivered to a client. The assignment editor might employ their favorite technology tool to create content calendars. This may require tracking delivery and acceptance by the client and requesting that charges be billed to the client.
  • Social Media Evangelist with project implementation and budget responsibility. Typical projects involve creating the proper presence and raising awareness of clients via a combination of LinkedIn, LinkedIn Groups, Facebook and Facebook Pages (for a company), Twitter, or Instagram.
  • PR Researcher is responsible for researching and compiling Editorial Calendars (seasonal). Also, responsible to find Reporters covering specific beats and making database updates.
  • Writing opportunity, depending upon qualifications and often the ability to write about technology, software, or supply chain. 
  • Contractor positions: we may have or seek contractors to help with certain tasks, such as graphic design, website building, or web hosting.
    • Interns: we regularly have an intern (contractor position) working on a team
    • Bookkeeper with experience in the professional services industry

Principals and Alliance Partners

The firm is interested in discussing affiliation with professionals that can successfully manage daily client relationships and workloads with the assistance of headquarters support for sales, contracts, billing, editing, and back-office support. These are team efforts within a virtual company model.
