Why Work for KAPP-KVEW ABC TV / Phase 3 Digital?
Because we care about you and your life outside of work just as much as we value the work you do to build community businesses each day. As a Morgan Murphy Media company, we are a well-established, well-respected leader in the Yakima/Tri-Cities markets and we’re here to help you grow in your career and train you to tap into your creative side as you build those lasting business relationships. Our department is structured to allow our salespeople the opportunity to work semi-remote. We are located in Yakima, WA so you’ll have the opportunity to live in a city that is growing and changing, with virtually no traffic and plenty of access to the scenic outdoors, fantastic cuisine, award-winning wineries, and cultural diversity.
What your career entails:
As a Salesperson you will interact with business owners and decision makers so a genuine, passionate and creative approach is essential to establishing trust with new and existing clients. Your communication style needs to be effective and relatable as you recommend business solutions, as well as sponsorship and promotional opportunities, to clients. The strategic business plans you develop and create will include both TV and digital advertising components.
What the job requires of you:
