We’re Hiring @ Next Gen HQ!

Account Executive, Education Channel | New York City

Are you interested in helping the world think like entrepreneurs, furthering the Next Gen #MomentumMovement? Are you looking to grow invaluable social & selling skills, open multiple new accounts, and expand your network while driving meaningful revenue?

If you’re growth-oriented, a fast-learner, and ready to contribute to a powerful mission, this role is for you.

About Next Gen HQ:

Next Gen HQ empowers young professionals with momentum to win at business and life through cultivating the entrepreneurial mindset.

Our purpose is to empower young professionals and leaders to design the lives they want to live, overcoming the obstacles that get in the way of success.

Next Gen HQ community members have used our resources to access mentorship from senior executives, foster powerful relationships, find dream careers, learn new skills, raise tens of millions in venture capital funding, get featured in major media outlets, and so much more. Each day we aim to support members through our empowering digital platform and award-winning events.

We work with dozens of household brands (Capital One, Comcast) and universities (Amherst College, University of Delaware) to help them better access, engage with, and influence the next generation of leaders. Next Gen has become a ‘go-to’ for partners striving to stand out within a competitive landscape.

Working at Next Gen HQ might be for you if:

  • You are a self-starter and will always go the extra mile
  • You are a great communicator -- especially with a pen (keyboard*)
  • You exhibit strong project management skills
  • You have an overwhelming desire to grow
  • You can come up with a solution to any problem thrown at you
  • Nothing gives you a greater sense of accomplishment than helping others succeed
  • You thrive in a supportive community

Next Gen HQ is probably not for you if:

  • You are looking for a role with the same straight-forward tasks each day
  • You want a basic 9-5 job (do those really exist?)
  • You struggle with an answer to the question, "What do you think?"

Today, we’re searching for an Account Executive, Education Channel.
