25 job openings in the PR and marketing world

This week’s listings are about taking storytelling to new heights. Disney, Subaru, IBM,and other companies are all looking for someone to tell their tales.

It’s almost Halloween, and there is no shortage of creepy monsters and scary scoundrels, whether at live events or on television screens.

In this season of spooky frights, one must not forget the horrific side of the animation world: Disney villains have been frightening us since 1937.

Though you might scoff at some of these wrong-doers (Captain Hook was downright comical), their wickedness shouldn’t be underestimated.

Take, for example, Maleficent, who was evil just for evil’s sake:

There has also been many a child bursting into tears at the sight of Ursula, on screen or on stage at Disney Parks:

If you’ve reveled in these villains’ malevolence—or cheered for their demise—a job opening at Walt Disney Animation Studios might fit you better than Cinderella’s glass slipper.

The company is looking for a worldwide marketing and communications director, and the job listing includes this gem: “if you want to help tell compelling, enduring stories through movies, music or stage plays, then we want to hear from you.”

The position involves working alongside the VP of marketing in designing and presenting marketing campaigns for Disney’s animated releases, along with developing and maintaining key partner relationships in all of Disney’s management teams.

An MBA is preferred, and candidates should be adept and experienced at managing teams, be able to communicate effectively, and have strong analytical skills.

Knowing all the Disney songs won’t be enough, either: The right applicant will have a solid understanding of entertainment, animation, or film marketing along with proven experience in teamwork, multitasking, and successful communication campaigns.

Interested candidates can apply here. If you prefer television to movies, you can also apply for Disney’s digital sales account manager position.
