If you’re an experienced PR professional with a passion for writing/editing, nose for news, solid knowledge of social media and strong curiosity in real estate, then look no further for your next exciting communications job.

Taylor Johnson, Chicago’s premier PR firm specializing in real estate, is seeking a full-time or part-time senior account manager to join our growing team. In this position, you will be responsible for developing and executing innovative PR campaigns for some of the city’s most high-profile real estate firms and developments. Our diverse client roster spans the residential and commercial sectors and includes companies with both a local and national presence. Builders, developers, investors, property managers, brokers, contractors, architects and interior designers are just some of the clients you’ll have the opportunity to represent.

Typical duties involve writing and editing news releases, bylines and blog posts; identifying compelling story angles and pitching them to appropriate media outlets (print/digital, TV and radio); fulfilling source requests; cultivating relationships with influential reporters and editors; and managing social media programs, with ability to track results. Because you’ll also be attending client meetings and events, as well as occasional industry functions, access to a car is necessary.

Desired Skills and Experience:

· Bachelor’s degree in communications, journalism or English

· Superlative writing, pitching and editing skills, including knowledge of AP style

· Experience developing and managing social media campaigns

· Excellent time-management skills, attention to detail and ability to meet multiple deadlines simultaneously

· Ability to work independently or as a member of a team

· Ability and desire to work at a boutique agency

· Great work ethic and good play ethic

· Real estate knowledge a plus

· Bonus points for existing relationships with local and national media
