  • Media monitoring: Scan for client media coverage and compile media coverage reports to provide to clients
  • Speaking and awards: Create and update yearly calendars with speaking and awards opportunities; pull together abstracts and awards submission drafts, and submit the abstracts to nominate the company or product
  • Media relations: Monitor editorial opportunities and flag to the team, research media contacts, compile media contact lists for pitching, and create reporter briefing sheets
  • Social media: Research for and draft content to submit to client social media platforms
  • New business: Pull together preliminary research to contribute to new business pitches
  • Spirit committee: Be part of the Hoffman spirit committee to help plan company events or special treats

You may also have the opportunity to:

  • Draft press releases
  • Write media pitches and reach out to reporters
  • Create PowerPoint presentations for client speaking programs
  • Compile monthly metrics reports and end-of-the-month reports for client billing purposes

Flexibility and willingness for going above and beyond the call of duty is highly valued and rewarded.
