Considering that step forward in your career that challenges you and inspires greatness from you?
Searching for an agency on the move? One who–from its very inception–has made deep-rooted commitments to both the progressive organizations we’re proud to serve and the socially responsible business practices we stand behind . . .
MWD is an agency with a thirty-five-year track record of fundraising success (think well over 1 billion dollars raised in support of progressive causes and political campaigns). And we are in the midst of one of our best chapters to date! Our clients are some of the most prestigious organizations in America (and they are bigger and more influential than ever before), our wall of awards is growing with record pace (and, we just won a bunch more), and our employees are at the top of their game and leaders of our industry (and, quite frankly some of the most creative, impassioned, and exceptional folks you’ll ever work with).
If working to build the foundation for a better world by helping organizations who make a significant contribution to that same goal is something that resonates with you, then ask yourself if you’re up for the challenge of joining our ranks. If the answer is yes, you’re almost there! And we encourage you to take that leap and apply; turn the page to your next chapter because we are looking for our next Account Manager, and maybe that’s you.
