CIK Marketing is Hiring!

Ashley the Intern’s time with CIK is quickly coming to an end. Just over one month until she’s gone (sniff) and we’re not quite sure what we’re going to do without her! So, in order to fill the void, CIK Marketing is hoping to hire a part-time contract writer to help with a wide variety of ongoing projects.

If you’re a blogger, live in the Chatham-Kent area, and are looking for extra income, send us your resume, cover letter, and links to any online published works (this can include a personal blog – we wanna see your personality, as well as your professionalism!) Note: writing for the web is a tricky business, as you need to be able to create well composed prose that’s not too wordy, in a tone that’s personable, friendly, and fresh. At CIK, we write about everything from lawn care to financial planning, so strong research skills are required.
