Public Relations Strategist

Summary

We are looking for a content promoter to join our expanding marketing department. You’ll be responsible for outreach to external and internal communications, based on, but not limited to our client’s Public Image.

We want someone who has a passion for public relations and knows how to build those relationships organically. We want a savvy-networker, who can get our client’s brands in front of all types of audiences. While we’re a digital-focused agency, we also like to use traditional media (print, tv, radio) for our client’s PR needs.

You’ll need to be a cracker-jack communicator, and up to speed on the current media platforms. You’ll have to have impeccable attention to detail, and a fire in you—for our clients.
