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.

The Faithlife Study Bible Just Got Better

FaithlifeWe promised that we would continue to add relevant, up-to-date content to the Faithlife Study Bible and accompanying resources, and that’s exactly what we’re doing.

For example, the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the world’s most advanced Bible dictionary, is getting bigger and better. And since the Lexham Bible Dictionary comes with the Faithlife Study Bible, this means the FSB is getting bigger and better, too.

We’re excited to announce the addition of 58 new articles to the Lexham Bible Dictionary. This update includes articles written by scholars such as Alan J. HauserDouglas Stuart, and many others.

These articles cover topics like war in the New Testament, sacrifice in the Old Testament, biblical languages, the history of Mesopotamia, and more. Since October, we’ve added over 150,000 words, making the Lexham Bible Dictionary over 1.7 million words total—all currently free of cost.

Help Us Make Logos 5 Globally Accessible

Translate

We would love to make Logos available in every language, but we don’t have the in-house language skills to support more than the Spanish versions we currently offer.

If you’re a bilingual Logos user, we’d like your help in translating our software to your native language.

The plan

Our commitment to you is this: if you and other volunteers translate at least 90% of the software, we’ll publish it. You’ll be able to switch between languages in the program settings. Work on more than 20 languages is already underway; the first ones are German, Dutch, Portuguese, Chinese (Simplified & Traditional), Korean, and French.

In addition, we’d like to do complete localization for a handful of languages: translating not only the software itself, but also everything that accompanies it—help files, datasets, web content, and service emails. (Hiring bilingual customer-support staff, too.)

If you’d like to read more about this project, see what Bob Pritchett, our CEO, said in the forums. [Read more...]

Logos 5: Making Bibliographies a Breeze

Not many people love creating bibliographies. If you’re wise, you’ve been documenting your sources as you go. But you still have to compile that information into a workable bibliography. Often that obligatory but important task becomes a time-consuming afterthought—but not with Logos 5.

Logos makes bibliography creation a snap. It remembers what you’ve been reading, citing and organizing your sources in your chosen citation style automatically. You can add your own custom notes and annotations, and even share your bibliography with friends and colleagues on Faithlife, export to a word processor, or print straight from Logos 5.

 

The bibliography feature is another way Logos 5 is making Bible study more intuitive. Check out Logos 5′s other intelligent features, and see which base package is perfect for you.

3 Reasons You Should Get to Know Mary

Mary Devoted to God's PlanIf we’re truly honest, few of us would want to fill Mary’s shoes in real life. Being an unwed mother is no easy task in our society; in Mary’s culture, it could merit the death penalty. Yet when Gabriel burst into Mary’s home and announced the risky role God had chosen her for, she not only accepted—she sang, proclaiming herself blessed among women.

Perhaps this is why, when we think of Mary, we struggle to see her as anything other than the mother of Jesus. As we watch her unflinchingly scrap her own hopes and aspirations in service to God, we subconsciously elevate her as someone whose selflessness and grace are so far beyond our own experience that she can’t serve as a realistic role model.

But the Gospels tell a different story. They portray a young woman who sacrificed everything to become God’s servant, yet struggled in ways that feel strikingly familiar. Here are three reasons Mary is someone you should get to know.

1. She made mistakes

Any parent who has accidentally driven off without their child can take comfort, knowing they’re in good company. Imagine what Mary must have felt when she realized that she and Joseph had left Jesus—God’s Son—behind in Jerusalem after the Passover celebrations. It took her three days of frantic searching to locate him. [Read more...]

Free Book of the Month: Horae Homileticae, Galatians to Ephesians

Horae HomileticaeCharles Simeon’s Horae Homileticae, Volume 17: Galatians to Ephesians is free during the month of May! Get yours now.

Charles Simeon (1759–1836) was a well-known evangelical clergyman. His most notable work, Horae Homileticae, is a collection of sermons published in 1832 to benefit the next generation of young pastors.

“[Horae Homileticae] is the best place to go for researching Simeon’s theology. You can find his views on almost every key text in the Bible. . . . What Simeon experienced in the word was remarkable. And it is so utterly different from the counsel that we receive today that it is worth looking at carefully.” —John Piper

When you download volume 17 of Horae Homileticae, you’ll get 12 chapters of scholarly, spiritually rich insight into Galatians and Ephesians. Simeon breaks down the Scriptures chapter by chapter, which allows his exposition to focus on the books’ important themes: the fruits of the Spirit, freedom through Christ, and more.

“Be Bible Christians, not systems Christians.” —Charles Simeon (click to tweet)

Download Simeon’s Horae Homileticae, Galations to Ephesians today! Then enter to win the entire Horae Homileticae commentary.
