It’s hard out there for a college grad. That’s why Diffusion PR is committed to hiring the just-graduated PR pros of tomorrow each year as part of our PR Rookie program. This is not an internship or temporary training program – it’s the chance to jump right into the public relations industry and start learning the ins and outs of agency life in an open and supportive environment, where you can be a critical part of our team right from the start. As part of the Diffusion PR Rookie program you will get the right mix of training and entry-level experience you need to be successful in the inevitable “real world” everyone keeps talking about.
We’re not one of those agencies looking for an entry-level graduate to make media lists and take notes all day. Our Campaign Coordinators jump right into the daily grind – from learning how to pitch and build relationships with media, participate in creative campaigns, attending client meetings and showing off their writing skills – our model emphasizes clear deliverables for each client you work on so every team member is just as valuable as the next.
The Interview Process
That being said, we only want the best. That means our application process is nothing if not rigorous – comprised of three interview stages, the application, the virtual assessment and the final in-person interview. Those lucky few who will make it to the end of the application process will be hired as full-time Campaign Coordinators and have the opportunity to work across our amazing portfolio of tech and lifestyle client starting June 13, 2016!
Step 1 – Download and complete the PR Rookie Program application and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, May 6. We will be accepting applications on a rolling basis starting Monday, March 28, 2016.
Step 2 – Those chosen from the initial application review will be asked to complete a brief virtual assessment and phone interview in the weeks following their submitted application.
Step 3 – Those chosen to move on will attend an in-person interview between Monday, May 9, 2016 – Wednesday, May 18, 2016 at the Diffusion NYC offices.
