KJBU-LP 99.One FM, Oxnard’s newest radio station, currently has an opening for an experienced Community Outreach Field Representative (Account Executive, Field Representative). We are looking for a self-motivated individual with outside sales experience who has a passion for Sales and is eager to learn about our business. The ideal candidate will be expected to exceed challenging sales goals by cold-calling, networking, participating in community outreach, attending station events, building a referral database and cold calling in the community daily. The incumbent will be required to retain and build long-term client relationships.
The Community Outreach Field Representative will make an impact and support our efforts to educate, empower, and engage the African American community. Our goal is to unify the community through our education and information platforms. This effort requires revenue generation by fundraising including radio underwriting, donations, sponsorships, and other revenue generating tasks by our representatives. It is critical that non-profits take the initiative to get out and talk face-to-face with the citizens that fund the important work done each and every day. Here in Oxnard, we are working to establish a foundation of donors, grantors, sponsors, and underwriters to build the financial substance for our advocacy in the community.
