Working out of our CNN Atlanta office, you'll report to the marketing director and support our Creative Director and Senior Producers.

• Conduct video research to support projects selecting the best footage and soundbites for each project.
• Coordinate the delivery of marketing assets working with departments like Marketing Operations, the Media Team, PR, Social, Event Planning, etc.

The Essentials

• You're capable of meeting deadlines and working with daily time constraints
• You have a talent for anticipating needs and have professional judgment for handling confidential information
• You're a creative who rocks a positive attitude and has a high level of professionalism
