At Column Five, producers wear many hats: they are creatives; they are editors, journalists and creative writers; they are liaisons to a dedicated list of clients; they have good senses of humor; they are technologically adept and maybe even code a little, they are self-motivated, and generally excited about life. For our next producer hire, we want to know if you have solid experience within client service, writing for marketing, and working with design and development teams to create print and digital assets. Tell us about that in your cover letter.
