Public Relations Specialist

FischTank PR
New York, NY

*Please read the entire job posting and apply only if your qualifications match. We are only able to consider/review candidates whose qualifications match our needs as outlined below.*

FischTank is looking for an experienced PR professional (2-5 years industry work experience) to join its team as an Account Executive or Account Manager. The ideal candidate will have the following experience:

  • conducting media outreach to top tier, trade, and regional media outlets (print, online, and broadcast)
  • strong pitch writing and ideation abilities
  • media monitoring for trends and client news
  • a knack for identifying key journalists for outreach
  • strong writing and phone skills
  • some account management experience
  • the ability to work autonomously with oversight from senior team members.

This role has a heavy focus on day-to-day account tasks – media relations and pitching, social media, content writing, client communications – so the candidate should have an aggressive strategy toward those tasks. This is an opportunity to work with a terrific team of PR pros with great clients, who love getting big time media (and have a monthly contest to prove it).

**Experience in technology, healthcare, and financial services is a plus**

We are seeking someone who can come in with a postive attitude and generate interest for our clients from day one, and who is willing to outwork everyone to make our clients happy.

As we are a growing firm with a strong pipeline of new business, there is tremendous opportunity for an enterprising individual to move quickly through the ranks and leave their own imprint on the firm. FischTank provides employees with a great benefits package including healthcare (medical/dental/vision), 401k, flexible time off, work from home, flexible work hours, cell phone reimbursement, kitchen full of healthy snacks, and more.
