Executive Assistant, Media

Direct Hire

Andale, andale, mama, E-A, E-A, uh oh! Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines “Executive Assistant” as–okay, actually there is no entry in the dictionary for “Executive Assistant.” There is, however, an open spot for one at this legit-ass media company we work with. We know this isn’t the type of role you’re accustomed to seeing at The Hired Guns, but there’s a special reason we’ve taken it on.

Senior Vice President, Measurement

Direct Hire

“The proof is in the pudding.” Pretty weird phrase, huh? Why would someone take their hard-earned proof and stuff it inside a classic, if not dated, desert? Oh, wait! That’s not the whole phrase? It’s actually “the proof of the pudding is in the eating?” This changes everything! Now we have a metaphor, wherein the ad product is the pudding (and if you’re working with our client, it’s a damn good one). What we need now is a gustatorially liberated SVP of Measurement and Insights to prove to our client’s clients exactly how good that pudding is.

Vice President, Ad Product Strategy

Direct Hire

In the ancient tale of Oedipus the King, it is the blind prophet Tiresias who represents true courage. Sticking to the truth of one’s own augury against the fury of a king; this is how Tiresias earns his place in the pantheon of Greek Tragedy. All the time, we hear about Ancient Greek dramaturgy as a metaphor for ad product strategy. The parallels are obvious, and right now our client needs a Tiresias; a formidable, tenacious visionary who can decode the future of ad tech and steer their clients to greatness for the good of the commonwealth. Sound like you? Then read on.

How Being a Quitter Can Make You a Winner

When is it ok to quit? How do we know when it’s better to cut our losses and move on? What about “sunk costs” that cause us to dig ourselves into an even deeper hole? How do we decide when to drop something and when to persevere? How do we determine whether to give something (or someone) a second or third or tenth chance vs. when to say, “that’s it…enough is enough”?
