Comic Book Jobs: Diamond Comic Distributors

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Action Figures, Editorials,

Marvel MinimatesDo you have shelf upon shelf of collectible action figures based on obscure comic book characters? Are they arranged in alphabetical order, purchase order or by company?

Diamond Comic Distributors in Timonium, MD could be looking for a person just like you. They need a Marketing Supervisor but it's not for their regular comic book distribution business.

It's for their Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles division. So, you know, free sample toys now and then.

You’ll be involved in trade show planning and budgeting, expanding awareness of company brands, sales support functions, copywriting and contests and the ubiquitous “all other duties as assigned.”

And because we’re in a digital world now, you’ll be updating the company’s various websites, keeping track of the email and fan club lists, and using “social media” to expand the company’s profile and connect to the fans. There might even be some faxing involved, so drop by a museum or a thrift shop to see what a fax machine used to look like.

You’ll need a high school diploma “or equivalent” and strong organizational skills and the usual multitasking abilities, and a “knowledge of internet search engines,” which just sounds silly to mention in 2010.

Good luck, job seekers!
