Comic Book Jobs: DC Comics Direct Sales

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Conventions, Editorials, DC Comics,

SalesmanDC Comics is hiring again for their New York office. This time they’re looking for a Direct Sales Representative for their Sales Department.

You’ll get to coordinate “all sales of DC comics and book format titles, MAD Magazine and DC Direct items to retailers through exclusive sales agent.”

You’ll also be developing sales plans, special promotions, sales forecasts and all that sales-based stuff as you work to get people to buy more DC comics.

Bonus: scheduled calls to retailers and attendance at various conventions to interact with consumers and the retail community.

You know what that means? Free room at Comic Con International.

A college degree in Marketing or Business is “preferred but not required,” but you do need at least two years of related sales experience, in some kind of retail environment.

If you know anything about the comic book industry and its often dysfunctional relationship between retailers, distributors, publishers, fans and freelancers, that’ll help too, as would a knowledge of DC Comics and MAD Magazine.

Good luck, job seekers!
