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.

Logos 5: Search and Analyze the Root Word

Today’s post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris, who has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos seminars, provides many training materials.

A fellow Logos user recently emailed me this question:

Is there an easy way to search for all the forms of a word (noun, verb, adjective, adverb) at the same time?  Like, for example, all the forms of “sick” (astheneo) in James 5:14?

This is a great question, and the answer is “yes.” Actually, there are a couple of ways to accomplish this, but the following steps are fairly straightforward, and they showcase various Logos language features.

Here’s what I responded with:

  • Right-click on a word in an English Bible with the reverse interlinear, like sick in James 5.14 in the ESV. (A)
  • Select Root | Search this resource. (B) [Read more…]

Don’t Miss Out: Spring Sale Ends May 20!

base packages

If you’re looking to purchase a base package, now is the time. Through May 20, you’ll save 15% on any base package purchase. Just use coupon code SPRINGSALE at checkout to get your discount.

A massive library at a remarkable price

Not only is buying a base package a great investment—when you look at the pure volume of resources you’re getting, it’s an incredible deal.

Christ the Redeemer StatueFor example, Gold contains nearly 1,100 resources. If the average book spine is about 1 ½ inches wide (and many of these resources are much larger), this library would stand nearly 138 feet tall—8 feet taller than Brazil’s Christ the Redeemer statue! That’s a library your home office most likely wouldn’t fit, a library that would cost you thousands of dollars in print—about $21,000, to be exact. Just imagine adding the additional 900 resources in Diamond (a $52,500 print value total), or the additional 1,400 resources in Portfolio (a $78,000 print value total). [Read more…]

10 More Warren Wiersbe Quotes

Warren WiersbeToday we celebrate the birthday of one of America’s most beloved pastors. Warren Wiersbe, author of more than 80 books and former pastor of Moody Church in Chicago, turns 84 today.

Last year, we remembered his birthday with 10 dynamic quotes. Here are 10 more powerful quotes, taken from his “Be” series of commentaries.

1. “Each member in the body of Christ is important (1 Cor. 12:12–31), and we all need one another and to minister to one another. Since there’s no competition in the work of the Lord (John 4:34–38; 1 Cor. 3:5–9), there’s no need for us to promote ourselves. The important thing is that God receives the glory.” from Be Available: Judges

2. “‘Christ died,’ is only a fact in history, like ‘Napoleon died.’ The Gospel message is that ‘Christ died for our sins’ (1 Cor. 15:1–4, italics mine).” from Be Comforted: Isaiah

3. “Impatience was one of Israel’s besetting sins, and God was helping them learn patient obedience; for it’s through ‘faith and patience’ that God’s people inherit what He has promised (Heb. 6:12). God is never in a hurry. He knows what He’s doing, and His timing is never off.” from Be Strong: Joshua [Read 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.

Now on Pre-Pub: Spurgeon on Galatians

Spurgeon Commentary GalatiansThe words of Charles Spurgeon, the great nineteenth-century Baptist preacher, fill more than 100 volumes. He preached and wrote a phenomenal amount about the Bible, but only wrote commentaries on Psalms and Matthew. His content spans across all other biblical books, but it isn’t easy to find or use.

That’s why we’ve decided to create the Spurgeon Commentary: Galatians. When we created this resource, we had a few goals in mind:

  • Organize Spurgeon’s work into commentary format, curated and made accessible by verse and chapter
  • Tag content—such as illustrations—to make it easier to find in the Logos platform
  • Update Spurgeon’s language for readability
  • Highlight the content that’s most applicable to a modern audience

If you already own Spurgeon content in your Logos library, you may be wondering why you couldn’t just perform a search in Logos to find what you’re looking for. Of course, a search could turn up some of the same content, but this hand-edited resource provides content that a search would not. For example, the Spurgeon Commentary: Galatians picks up on allusions in Spurgeon’s writing, whereas a search for a particular verse range would find only explicit citations. [Read more…]

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…]
