Administrative Assistant - Advertising Account Coordinator

Harger Howe Advertising is a two-office agency that specializes in developing and executing strategic recruitment marketing campaigns for our clients in the areas of healthcare, energy, banking, and technology.

We are seeking a full-time Administrative Assistant – Account Coordinator to support two of our Houston-based Account Managers from our Burlington, MA office. This position is considered one of the most important roles in the agency, as you will be one of the main points of contact for many of our clients. As an Account Coordinator, you will be immersed in the day-to-day requirements of our client work, including proofreading, working with our creative team, posting jobs to job boards, media scheduling and buying, ad production, social media management, scheduling, and trafficking of projects. The role is primarily administrative, but it will also expose you to media buying/research, social media, the creative process, and inbound marketing.

To be considered, you must be a high-energy “type-A” personality who is hardworking, ambitious, and who thrives in a fast-paced environment with changing priorities while exhibiting a keen eye for detail (if you are exceptionally organized, that is awesome). A strong knowledge of social media and proficiency with Macs, Word, and Excel as well as great customer-relations skills, are essential.

This entry-level opportunity will expose you to all aspects of the agency business and has growth potential for those who are willing to work hard to make their mark. If you’ve wanted to break into a career in advertising, this is the place to start, as the role will allow the successful candidate to work for, learn from, and be mentored by experienced professionals.

What’s in it for you?

  • A great team of really nice people
  • Unlimited coffee and tea
  • Small office environment
  • Casual attire (..unless we are seeing clients and then we look awesome)!
  • The ability to learn many different parts of our business
  • A fun holiday swap complete with Worst Gift Award
  • Occasional office Poker nights
  • Medical, dental, vision (for full-time)
  • 401K with match
