We have a strong point of view on business as a professional services organization: Do what's right. Want to work with us?
We're RECRUITING for the following positions:
PUBLIC RELATIONS INTERN
We're looking for a hard working public relations go-getter to help us run the ground game. The ideal candidate will demonstrate a strong desire to learn while working side-by-side with seasoned PR pro's. Additionally, this ambitious ball of talent will have innate intellectual curiosity, strong writing skills, and a desire to exceed expectations.
You'll support your team and the client roster by providing day-to-day tactical doer-ship. You'll be a big part of a small team and you'll assist the leadership with daily tasks: attending meetings, providing input and the like. You'll be tracking media placements, writing media materials, engaging with producers, and - because you love publicity: you'll be helping the team earning media placements. In short, you'll earn a ship-load of real-world experience.
Daily activities will include:
Media clip tracking, reporting, pitching and networking
PR materials development
Managing media calendars and events
We're open to a wide range of school or work experience, but we're also looking for exuberance. Here are some guidelines:
You must have an instinct to default to action. That means in word association games, we'll say "you" and you'll say "productive"
You must be able to write for news media.
You must be exceptional on the phone... and unafraid to call people you don't know.
You must be a pleasant, or at least entertaining, person. If you're a curmudgeon, you better be pretty funny.
You should be comfortable with a fluid professional environment.
Compensation & Benefits:
We offer an attractive paid internship program. We're not posting it here, but we'll tell you upfront in the interview process. We want you to be happy with your decision to join the Punch team.
To apply for this position, send a cover letter and resume to: dracine @ punch-pr.com
FREELANCE pr pro / pr project CONTRACTOR
We're always looking for strong bench players. If you're a PR freelancer, then let's talk.
From time to time, we offer contract-based project work to help scale our team to meet our needs. We require time commitments from contractors who can satisfy the scope of the project and we offer our office space to be used as shared co-working space.
All freelancers/contracts must have demonstrable experience as well as references.
Compensation & Benefits:
We typically offer hourly as well as flat-rate compensation packages. But, we're always open to new relationship models, so let's talk: email dracine @ punch-pr.com
our cultural guidance
Do what's right.
Where can we be most relevant and purposeful today?
Algorithms are great, but people are more interesting.
We can't live forever, so we'll just have to do all the important things now. But to do that, we need to stay healthy in mind and body.
