Class of 2005
Account Executive - Clear Channel WAEB, WZZO, WKAP
typical day: Well, I just switched companies, but my job is still the same so I'm sure I will be able to improvise. As an account executive (which is a fancy name for salesperson) I work solely in an effort to better local businesses by providing a service for them, and Clear Channel, by making them money and finding them new accounts and potential long term customers. I work in the sales of advertising time on the different radio stations and exposure in various promotional events hosted by the stations. My day basically consists of calling and physically visiting different businesses in our listener area and pitching to them ideas that would work well to get them more customers and potential sales.

insights: I must admit, this is not what I wanted to do coming out of college. I always had focused more on the production side of the coin and not so much in the business aspect, but I'm getting a ton of great experience, plus making some money on the side.
