Oh no, another fire to put out. But that doesn’t faze you. You’ve dealt with this before. You’re organized, managed, and excited for creative ideas to flourish. And it’s with the awesome relationship you created with the client that helps all this magic happen.
An Account Manager supports the account team in managing the day-to-day activity of the account, including managing client deadlines, maintaining the integrity of the client’s budget and developing the account. By this stage in your career, you must be a proactive person who can multi-task, foster a positive team atmosphere, and be a leader.
