TOP BOUTIQUE PR FIRM SEEKING SEASONED PR PROFESSIONAL

A well-positioned national public relations firm is looking for a seasoned and talented PR professional in Washington, D.C. This senior player will be responsible for both client liaison and media relations, working from their own technologically well-equipped home office and from the client’s office. The successful applicant will have a nose for news, be able to sniff out media opportunities beyond the perfectly obvious, know how to connect with and pitch compelling stories to leading editors and reporters, and be genuinely motivated to follow through to exceed this client’s high expectations in the D.C. national and international media markets.

This job opportunity requires a full-time person with PR experience, excellent references, ability to work independently, and a great “can-do” attitude.

Work responsibilities include strategic and tactical media campaign planning; brainstorming ideas and approaches; pitching and liaison with print, broadcast and electronic media representatives; organizing media meetings and briefings; responding quickly and appropriately to breaking news; managing PR crises promptly and effectively; and creating media opportunities for the client, rather than waiting for them to fall like ripe plums into your lap. All client work relates to issues, not products.

Position offers a competitive salary based on your experience, as well as benefits that include healthcare for the employee on a 70/30 share, profit sharing, vacation, sick days, 10 company holidays and some schedule flexibility.

To apply, send cover letter and resume including salary requirements and anything else you think will help us evaluate your ability to: PRperson08@hotmail.com.
