6 Reasons You Should Intern at Logos

photoLast spring, I graduated from college; four weeks ago, I started at Logos as a marketing intern. It’s been a four-week whirlwind—I’ve been learning a ton of valuable information and working with awesome people. And I’m only one-third of the way done! I leave Logos every day with new lessons learned, excited to return the next morning.

What I appreciate most about my time so far is how Logos empowers its employees, interns included. You won’t be doing busywork and brewing coffee for your superiors.1 You’ll take full ownership of projects—you’ll be the one in charge of strategizing and executing.

Sound overwhelming? Don’t worry—you’ll have an individual mentor, plus some of the friendliest and most helpful coworkers the corporate world has to offer.

Here are six reasons you should intern at Logos:

  1. Get real-world experience. You’ll work on important projects, and you’ll leave with firsthand knowledge.
  2. Take advantage of flexible hours. Are you an early bird? Prefer to sleep in? You choose when your day starts and ends.
  3. Get unlimited soda pop and espresso. Need I say more?
  4. Work with awesome people. Want to join a running group? There’s one at Logos. Want to have a potluck dinner with your team? Food is always encouraged. Want to host a game night? Logos loves games!
  5. Get surprise perks. Recently, Logos has treated its employees to free Belgian waffles, free vouchers at a local food festival, and more!
  6. Get paid. Since you’re doing work that matters, you’ll earn competitive pay.

Introducing Logos Book Cache

Logos_BookCache_BlogHeader_620x175-version2

The Logos Book Cache program charges your credit card a fixed amount each month to purchase credit on your Logos.com account. Select the amount of credit you wish to purchase; once a month, your card will be charged automatically and the credit placed in your account. Your credit may be used on any purchase at Logos.com, including Pre-Pubs and Community Pricing titles. If you wish to change the amount of credit you’re purchasing, or discontinue the service, you may cancel at any time.

Why use Book Cache?

1. Massive Pre-Pub discounts, generous payment terms—together at last!

Pre-Pubs are designed to give you the biggest discounts possible in exchange for full payment on the day each title ships. Unfortunately, when you can’t afford such a big charge all at once, you’re left with unattractive options. You can either put the full amount on a credit card and deal with the fallout, or pay a lot more at the higher price once it ships, just so you can get it on a payment plan.

With Book Cache you can begin purchasing credit for your Logos.com account now, so you’ll be ready when that irresistible Pre-Pub comes around. You get the best of all worlds: credit that never expires, the massive Pre-Pub discount, an automatic monthly charge, and no payment-plan fees! [Read more...]

How to Land a Marketing Job at Logos

Hire MeAs of today, Logos’ marketing department has 21 openings. We’re looking for writers, editors, coders, strategists, managers, and more, and we want to hear from you.

So how do you land a job at Logos?

1. Be distinct

“Objective: self-starter / team player seeks a dynamic web 2.0 position that advances my career and leverages my talents.”

Nope—the last thing you want to do is blend in with generic language. Rather than adapting an online template or a cover letter from a different job, start by studying the job listing. Think about how you would filter out candidates, and write to beat that filter—be specific about how you meet each qualification.

One good way to stand out: get your portfolio online. That lets us quickly get a feel for your work and personality; plus, it shows some tech know-how. Even if you’re no web designer, WordPress makes it simple to get started.

2. Be polished

We want to hire the best people, the people with the highest standards. We also work with extremely tight deadlines. It says a lot if your cover letter and résumé, written without any deadline, are full of spelling and grammatical errors. Check everything you’re not sure about against Merriam-Webster—“Is ‘phenomenon’ plural?” “Does ‘sign-up’ need that hyphen?” Then proofread until everything’s perfect, and then a few times more.

Why Every Single Endorsement Matters

Randy AlcornWe believe that Bible study is the center of the Christian life. It’s our privilege to equip pastors, students, missionaries, teachers, and the church at large with tools that make Bible study easier and more accessible.

That’s why each endorsement we receive, whether from well- or lesser-known ministry leaders or from home users, is important to us. Each confirms that we’re on track toward providing the church with the best Bible-study tools.

Here are a few of our most recent endorsements:

“I am absolutely thrilled with Logos 5 and the new enhancements it brings, especially searching for phrases. Overall, the program responds even more quickly, and using my Platinum Library, I could hardly believe that a search for ‘metanoia’ (the Greek word for “repentance”) yielded 424 results in 0.26 seconds and that a search for the phrase ‘dead to sin’ yielded 523 results in 2.27 seconds. And from there, once I’m reading one of the sources, I can click on a cross-reference within my library and, voilà, there it is on my screen. . . . All in all, Logos 5 is a remarkable and practical software system, beckoning me to deeper study and greater fruitfulness in the Lord’s service. Best of all, I can do this kind of study at 35,000 feet while traveling to India!”—Michael L. Brown, PhD, author, professor, and national radio host

“Logos 5 is an incredible tool that instantly connects me with everything and everyone I need to get the Word out, from its Timeline to smart searches to social sharing.”—Kirk Cameron, producer of Monumental: In Search of America’s National Treasure and star of the international hit Fireproof.

“It’s a simple truth that I forget far too often—to know God, we have to know His Word. . . . Reading the Bible in a year helps me do just that. It keeps me organized, disciplined, and reading parts of the Bible I wouldn’t otherwise choose to read on a normal basis. The Bible is a delicious feast, and reading it all the way through makes sure you aren’t leaving anything on your plate. You’ll miss some days, that’s for sure, and that’s fine—use Faithlife’s Read the Bible in a Year plan to bring yourself closer to your Maker and His Word.”—Jefferson Bethke, Christian blogger and spoken-word poet

“Logos Bible Software is an extraordinary tool for both the Bible teacher and the Bible student…. Its extensive and expandable library of resources, ingenious search capabilities, and user-friendly interface make Logos 5 an indispensable and delightful aid for every user. You won’t be disappointed!”—Ray Comfort, founder & president of Living Waters

“As an historian, I can attest that knowing the facts and how to get them fast is crucial—if you’re going to stand for truth and against the attacks on our faith and heritage—and Logos 5’s Bible Facts tool gets you exactly where you need to go. . . . History is all about being able to accurately make the connections, and so is Logos 5. Its Bible Facts connects every person, place, thing and event, from which you can select and pull up quick summaries and links to more information—including relationships, maps, photos, key passages and more—that appear with just a click. And with every event tied to an exhaustive 6,000-plus-year Timeline, you can virtually see history unfolding on the screen before your very eyes.”—David Barton, founder and president of Wallbuilders

We’d love to hear about your experiences with Logos 5, too. Leave us a comment and tell us how it’s helping you do better Bible study.

How to Get a Custom Discount on Logos 5

Logos 5 isn’t the only thing that’s new this month—our website’s updated, too. You’ve seen our blurb about the Custom Upgrade Discount Calculator at the bottom of every Logos 5 blog post thus far (including this one) telling you about special pricing. But what does that mean? Just how special is “special pricing”?

You Get Credit for What You Already Own

The Custom Upgrade Discount Calculator takes your entire Logos library into account, and then generates a custom discount based on every Logos resource you own. That’s right: the calculator tallies it all so you only pay for what’s new to you.

  • What if I don’t own a base package? No problem. If you’ve only ever picked up commentaries or collections and never invested in a base package, your books still contribute to your custom price.
  • What about my Libronix books? No problem. The Custom Upgrade Discount Calculator factors them in.
  • What about my pre-Libronix books? No problem. The calculator doesn’t overlook them, even if you’re still using Logos 1.0.
  • What if I own part of a collection in the base package I want? No problem. You’ll see that it’s a product you partially own, and we’ll credit you for it.
  • What if I bought my base package at a retail location? No problem. It doesn’t matter where you got your Logos library; if you’re logged in, the calculator takes it all into account.
  • What about my Logos T-shirt? Sorry! Until we start encoding Bible software into our T-shirts, they won’t count for credit toward your Logos 5 purchase.

How to See Your Discount

Just log in on Logos.com, and then explore our seven new Logos 5 base packages. The Custom Upgrade Discount Calculator updates your price dynamically; you never have to wonder if you’re missing out on your custom discount. The price also adjusts to reflect the current pricing of resources across Logos.com; when a relevant product price changes, your custom discount changes, too.

And now you know what we’re talking about when we say:

It’s time to upgrade to Logos 5. See the special pricing our Custom Upgrade Discount Calculator has for you. (Seriously, folks, it’s really cool!)

Logos 5: Where Innovation Meets Bible Study

Innovative is the perfect word to describe Logos 5. The Latin roots of the word innovate literally mean “into the new,” and with Logos 5, Logos Bible Software is making Bible study new again.

Logos includes an entire department dedicated to developing innovative content. This team’s goal is to find new ways to connect you to important biblical information. The kind of work they’re doing can’t be automated—the team combed through Scripture and isolated, tagged, and created these connections. It’s this labor of love that makes Logos 5′s cutting-edge features feasible.
