As a * * Client Account Partner (CAP) in the Northwest, you’ll have the opportunity to partner with a Client Account Manager (CAM) to develop and drive sales strategy through market and industry research, leadership, communication, organization, and planning on both an account and opportunity level. In partnership with our sales and project delivery teams, your focus is to position Jacobs as the consultant-of-choice for key clients across the Northwest.

This includes collaborating with sales and technical staff, working with graphic designers to develop exhibits, organizing working sessions and rehearsals, coaching speakers, and practicing questions/answers and key messages.
