    Another change is coming to the Department of Marketing...

    Siera al'Cere (Sedai) has been a staple in Marketing, having served as Project Manager since 2011 when I nagged at her to take over for me when I stepped down to be HoA. She has been the sole reason we even have Ajah and Company Logos, while also flawlessly keeping up our shop with event items and submissions. And while her work in Marketing isn't done *dangles chains* the Project Manager position is in need of some fresh blood with new and vibrant perspective.

    I genuinely could not have done this job without her, and for that I am eternally grateful for Siera's (Sedai) help in making the Marketing Department the amazing staple of this community as that it is!


    Without further ado:

    Marketing Project Manager

    Description
    The Project Manager is an administrative position within the Department of Marketing. This position reports directly to the Director of Marketing.

    The Project Manager will be the team lead and direct point of contact for the members of the Marketing Graphics Development Team (GDT). She/he will track all graphics requests and graphics projects for Marketing, ensuring that designers are assigned to each project, that work is completed on time, and that projects are not left undone. The Project Manager will help with the work load as needed, as an active designer.

    The Project Manager will use and maintain the TarValon.Net CafePress account. She/he is responsible for adding and removing products, updating the look of the store, and handling any issues with or questions about the store.

    The Project Manager works closely with the Director of Marketing--frequent communication between these positions is essential.

    Duties
    • Maintain high standards of production for the GDT, encourage a positive work environment, and manage a timely input/output work flow of departmental graphics projects. Create graphics for projects as needed.
    • Manage current product selections in the TarValon.Net CafePress store.
    • Work with the Director of Marketing, GDT, and the Keeper to brainstorm ideas for new products and outlets for products.
    • Maintain and update the visual look of the CafePress store including making all relevant graphics.
    • Become familiar with the basic legal & financial aspects of both CafePress and TarValon.Net, and make sure all artwork and products are in accordance with copyright and other relevant laws.


    Requirements
    • Must have been a member of TarValon.Net for at least 6 months. Applicants may be of any rank.
    • Activity level: 10-20 hours per week on the boards/in IRC.
    • Must be familiar with or able to quickly learn the CafePress interface.
    • Must be experienced in one or all of the following areas: graphic design, web design, interactive design, typography, illustration, or visual arts. All applicants are asked to submit a portfolio of work with their application, either in the form of a personal website, CoroFlot site, a Photobucket album, a DeviantArt account, or equivalent. The portfolio must include at least ten examples of visual work in your area of specialty.
    • Experience with web design and coding (HTML/CSS/others) and familiarity with creating graphics for the web are preferred.
    • Must own graphics editing software, such as Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator, Corel Painter or Draw, Paint Shop Pro, or equivalent.
    • Must be able to work collaboratively in a team environment, and be able to give and receive constructive criticism to/from other team members.
    • Must be organized and able to work independently.
    • Other Skills that might make a winning application: Nunchuku skills, bow hunting skills, computer hacking skills, wicked dance moves, ability to catch a delicious bass or draw a liger...
    • Knowledge of bribery and distracting the Director is a plus.


    How to Apply
    Send an email to marketing@tarvalon.net, keeper@tarvalon.net, and amyrlin@tarvalon.net with the subject set as "APPLICATION - PROJECT MANAGER - YOURNAMEHERE,".

    Applications should include a statement of why you are a good fit for this position, a note about your relevant experience, and a link to the aforementioned portfolio of work.

    It's really strange seeing this :look

    But yes! Apply people! It really is a good position. I just think it needs fresh blood and I want to take a step back to focus back on the Graphic work.

    If you have any questions feel free to ask!

    We might be getting close to the holiday crazy, but don't forget to get your applications in! This is job centers mostly around Project Management (as per the title) and if organizing pretty things is your 'thing' this is DEFINITELY the job for you! :D

    I wish I had the time for this, it'd be a great challenge and accomplishment. :( I am sure that someone else more competent and with more time on their hands will come along. If not, there are always means of persuasion. :shifty

    Is this a job that can be held concurrently with other admin positions? If so, which ones?

    Sarr, it's a great position to learn on if your up for a challenge. And you'll be working with a very small team. ^^

    Unfortunately the rules wouldn't allow this position to be held in conjunction with another Admin Role because you are serving as an Admin (you have staff under you!). Otherwise i'd have kept it when I started to serve as HoA for Gray. :)
