Triangle Tech Connect is a monthly review of local entrepreneurial Technology Sales and Marketing career opportunities.
If you weren’t fortunate enough to be among the 200 plus attendees at last week’s sold out Triangle AMA Luncheon then you missed a real treat. The first CMO “She Suite” panel moderated by Karen Albritton (CEO and President of Capstrat), featured 5 top marketing leaders from our community: Jackie Yeaney (Redhat), Catherine Harrell (Citrix), Amy Pirozzolo (Fidelity Charitable), Dana McMahan (TOPO Distillery), and Carol Wentworth (Performance Bicycle).
So why am I leading with the luncheon for this issue? Simple. The panel not only wowed us with their insight on today’s marketing trends, visions for 2017 and beyond, and their own personal stories of success, they are also hiring. The audience got an opportunity to hear first-hand what these impressive leaders look for when building their organizations. In addition to key marketing skills Jackie Yeaney, Marketing Executive for Redhat looks for candidates that demonstrate traits of curiosity, storytelling capabilities, empathy, determination, flexibility, and grit. Grit may be difficult to show in a resume but here is your chance to show just how creative you are. Marketing Specialist, Program Marketing Managers, Corporate Communications Manager, Graphic Designer, and Marketing Program Analyst, Inside Sales Manager, and Inside Sales Account Manager are some of the jobs available.
Ok, so Citrix isn’t exactly the small startup that is usually featured in this publication but with 14 available sales and marketing positions in Raleigh they couldn’t be ignored.

Open Raleigh Sales positions include two Corporate Sales Representatives, ShareFile Associate Sales Representative, and Sales Engineer. If you need a little more encouragement I’ll end this paragraph with the words of panel speaker and Marketing Executive for Citrix, Catherine Harrell, “If you don’t ask you don’t get” so readers – go get!
Panelist, Amy Pirozzolo, believes that while “2016 is the year of Content Marketing, 2017 will be the year for Value-Based Marketing.
