Our client needs multiple Media Buyers and Senior Media Buyers to join their in-house team full-time onsite at their office in Rockland County, NY. Their office is commutable!

A bus stops at their building for stops to/from Port Authority. We can share a full schedule and there is also an NJ Transit train to Pearl River but it’s not as direct -- one would need to take a local bus or cab after the train. The train station is about a mile from their building.
