As an Account Manager in Online Sales, I help some of Google's highest-potential advertisers grow their business using Google's products (including search, display advertising, TV, and YouTube). I manage a multi-million dollar book of business and build partnerships with key decision-makers, develop a deep understanding of the advertiser's business model and its customers, and create compelling advertising solutions through customized analysis.
I chose the Metro Detroit area because I was born and raised here and I believe that Detroit and Metro Detroit businesses are detrimental across the nation and am proud to be a part of one of them. I found my job through a referring college friend, but anyone else interested in job openings at Google can visit www.google.com/jobs. Google is known for it's energetic culture, and the Ann Arbor office is no different and I enjoy being able to express my personal interests in my work.
Additionally, unlike many other business that have advertising account managers, you don't need to put a certain amount of time under your belt to meet face-to-face with a client, so there is a lot of avenues to grow professional skills and build your career in the direction that you want.
