Alumni Stories: Charlie Stoebe ’08 on Entering the Media Industry

After graduating from Dartmouth in 2008 with a degree in Psychology, Charlie Stoebe immediately began a two-year Rotational Program at NBC Universal focused on digital media. Since completing the program, he’s spent the past three years working in the sales and marketing side of NBC Sports. We asked him to tell us a little bit more about what it is like to work in Advertising and how to best enter the field:

Position: Marketing Manager at NBC Universal (NBC Sports).

Two sentence description of what you do

Charlie Stoebe

The role of the Sales Marketing group is to generate revenue for NBC Sports through advertising. My specific role on the Marketing side is to come up with custom solutions for brands to execute on NBC Sports properties.

What is most satisfying about your current work?

I love how challenging and different each day is. On Monday I’ll be thinking of how to convince McDonald’s to spend money within Sunday Night Football, and then on Tuesday I’m working on an idea for Allstate within Premier League soccer. It’s the benefit of working in a fast paced environment for a large company.

What’s the best way to enter your field? Any essential elements of preparation?

I think the best way is to get a job within a large media company. I started in a rotational program where I got to see different sides of the organization (News Publishing, Ad Sales, & Digital Products) before settling down into my current role. Obviously that is not available everywhere but any exposure within a large media company will help you learn about the different skills needed within each department.

What advice would you give to others seeking opportunities in this field?

I think the most important thing for Sales Marketing is writing. I have always loved writing – whether it be ridiculous emails to my fraternity or the infinite-page Psych papers each term. My job at its core is creative writing so having any background where writing is key will be extremely helpful.

How has Dartmouth supported you in your career development?

The NBC rotational program I started in came to campus for the Employer Connections Fair and that’s how I got my start. Luckily for me the head of the program was a Dartmouth ’97 and he was intent on having someone from Dartmouth get into the program – forever grateful to have been that someone.

Is there anything that we haven’t asked you that you think we should?

The media industry is definitely underrepresented at most (if not all) career fairs, but don’t let that fool you – there is a job for every passion and major. Check the careers section of the websites of all the major networks (NBC, CBS, ESPN, MTV, etc.) to see what’s available. There are an infinite number of entry-level jobs at these companies so just because they don’t come to campus does not mean they are not hiring.

Priority Application Deadline: November 30th!

The joint application form is available here.

Climate Summer continues! We’re working hard to build on the relationships and lessons of the first three years of Climate Summer, & we’re excited to be working on YEAR 4!

Ride for the Future (a new program in 2012)

In the summer of 2012, our Ride for the Future team will travel exclusively by bicycle together from New Orleans to ExxonMobil’s international headquarters in Irving, Texas.

Along the way, the participants will learn from and highlight local efforts to improve communities while transitioning them away from fossil fuels.  At the same time, the riders will highlight the harms fossil fuels cause communities, visiting environmental justice communities suffering from pollution from refineries and power planets, communities still suffering from the the BP oil spill, and communities suffering from natural disasters in line with scientists predictions of a changing climate, including the droughts and wildfires in Texas and hurricane damage across the region.

While learning from those who have suffered from fossil fuels and those who are building a better future without them, riders will engage in direct community service to mitigate the suffering and ease the transition.  At ExxonMobil’s headquarters, the riders will call for a meeting with executives from the world’s wealthiest fossil fuel company to ask them to recognize their responsibility to help America and the world rapidly and responsibly transition away from fossil fuels. More information coming soon to rideforthefuture.org!
