When Jason Seiden and I decided that we were going to do an online job search prep course, we knew that we wanted to build a buzz before the course was open for enrollment. We decided that the best way to let people know more information about the course was to build an e-mail list. That’s what we did, and very quickly hundreds of people who were interested in the course signed up to be given more information via e-mail. When you need to manage an e-mail list of that size, it’s a lot easier to use third-party software. We went with a company called Aweber, but we looked at a number of other companies that offer similar services. One of those companies was Constant Contact, which is based out of Waltham, MA. As they put it, they help “small businesses, associations, and nonprofits connect with their customers, clients, and members” through “leading email marketing and online survey tools—supported by its expert personal coaching and support.” In fact, if you scroll to the bottom of many of the mass e-mails that you get, there’s a good chance that you’ll see a Constant Contact logo at the bottom.
If you want jobs in your e-mail, then sign up here (they’re delivered for me by FeedBurner, not Constant Contact). If you want jobs in e-mail, then you should check out Constant Contact. They’ve been around since 1998 and they have more than a quarter million customers. Despite the fact that e-mail isn’t a hot new Web 2.0 technology, it’s still one of the best ways to connect with people in a meaningful way. There’s a good reason that companies like mine pay good money to companies like Constant Contact to provide e-mail marketing tools – there’s a huge return on investment. That’s why it’s no surprise that Constant Contact appears to be doing well despite the down economy. They have nearly two dozen job openings posted on their Careers page, and a few of them appear to be appropriate for new and recent grads (some require a few years of experience). These include Entry Level Software Engineer, Junior Developer (Contract), Business Intelligence Reporting Analyst, Inside Sales Representative (Loveland, CO), Compliance Specialist, and Customer Support Specialist (Loveland, CO or Waltham, MA). You can apply for all of these jobs online, so check out the descriptions and see if anything is a good fit.
