How to discover your new career as NCCN publisher


North Carolina Construction News staff writer

There are cliches about ideal career opportunity candidates such as “self-motivated,” “able to work independently” and “willing to work in a performance based (commission) environment.”

However, these standard job description themes can only superficially convey your opportunity if you would like to become the next North Carolina Construction News (NCCN) publisher.

The successful publisher will work independently, from his or her home, yet with support and encouragement from the company. Working hours and schedule are up to the publisher. Virtually all client related tasks are completed in the daytime (morning hours are best), with a few evening association events, and rarely on weekends.

There’s a little travel, if you want it. There are events, trade shows and community activities and an annual expense paid visit to the Canadian corporate headquarters.

While most of the work is business development (sales), experience in sales is not a precondition.

“We have a simple and quick evaluation tool that provides a good insight into your likeliness of success – and we’ll share the results with you,” said Chase, the Construction News and Report Group of Companies (CNRG)’s director of recruitment and training.

While your primary area of responsibility initially will be in North Carolina, income top-up is possible through leads from other markets including Florida and Chicago, and you can help the business grow by picking additional markets to develop, he said.
