Account Manager - Dubuque, IA

We are looking for an Account Manager to create long-term, trusting relationships with our authors. Are you someone who wants to travel and meet experts in their field?   As an Author Account Manager, you will travel to college campuses in your territory.  

As a leader in customized educational publishing solutions headquartered in Dubuque, IA, Kendall Hunt Publishing has been privately owned and operated for over 65 years.  We offer high quality educational materials, services and solutions to the Higher Education Academic market.  We see enormous business opportunity because we know most students don’t read traditional 900-page textbooks…unless they’re cramming for a test.  We develop educational materials that are well designed, interactive, and in line with the educational goals of the author and, in turn, the students.  Our employees are driven and passionate about excelling, learning, having fun, and making the world a better place by helping to improve the experience of both college-level students and professors.   Visit our website at to learn more.
