Account Coordinator – Consumer & Lifestyle Brands
First, a little bit about us:
Litzky Public Relations is a boutique agency on the Hoboken waterfront (it’s a pretty amazing view). We are a close-knit team of 25 PR superstars known for our results-focused approach and exceptional client services. We are savvy storytellers and media matchmakers; big thinkers and bold doers. We love what we do – and have a lot of fun doing it. And, we’re in search of an Account Coordinator looking to join our team and support some of the world’s most iconic consumer brands.
Now, a little bit about you:
You’re ready to kick start your career in public relations. You’ve gained at least one year of real experience through internships or your first position, and have an educational background studying public relations, communications, journalism, marketing, or a related field. You love what you’ve learned so far, and are eager to take it to the real world.
You’re a creative writer and thinker. From brainstorming unique news hooks and inspirational brand campaigns to clever ideas and copy for product mailers, you have a flair for creativity and add it into all your work.
You’re okay doing the nitty gritty. PR isn’t all glitz and glam – there’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes. You could be running product to the city for a TV segment, assembling and packaging samples in a rush to meet editorial deadlines, setting up and breaking down events, and more. All these small pieces lead to big successes.
You know what makes a great pitch. You have a keen interest in news media and social influencers and love discovering up-and-coming personalities. You have media relations experience from your previous positions, including reaching out and establishing connections with relevant contacts.
You have an innate love for research. You’ll monitor for media and influencer placements, research reporters to create media lists, uncover new influencers across platforms like YouTube, Instagram, and Twitch, and more.
You thrive in a fast-paced environment. You diligently meet deadlines, and know how to shift gears when priorities change (which they can, very quickly!)
How you’ll make an impact:
You’ll be the foundational support for your team. You’ll keep your team organized to a tee, as you’ll be responsible for product inventory, assembling mailers and shipments, maintaining coverage trackers, assisting with client reports, and more.
You’ll create long-lasting relationships with media an influencer contacts. A big part of your day will be proactive media relations – identifying and pitching press, influencers, and fans. PR is never one and done; you’ll build long lasting relationships with the contacts you work with.
You’ll become an expert at everything. We wear many hats. One day you’re packing up product mailers, the next you’re mingling with top tier media at a client event. No two days are ever the same.
Your voice will be heard. We strive to provide a collaborative, creative environment where each person feels encouraged to contribute to our processes, decisions, planning, and culture.
Why you’ll love it here:
The benefits are great. In addition to a competitive salary base and compensation plan, we cover health insurance in full. Employees are also eligible for long and short term disability benefits, life insurance, a medical flexible spending account, and a 401k program.
The perks are pretty good, too. We’re a dog-friendly office with yoga on Wednesdays. We love to get together in and out of the office, and find lots of reasons to celebrate throughout the year – from summer happy hours to holiday cookie swaps to National Donut Day (we love snacks, too).

We have an amazing schedule. Flex hours, paid holidays, two weeks paid vacation, summer Fridays, and time to rest and recharge while the office is closed between Christmas and New Year’s.
There’s room for growth. We invest in our team and are seriously committed to professional advancement. Need proof? The President of our agency started out as an LPR intern.
You’ll gain a little bit of experience in a lot of areas. No two days are ever the same, and you wear many hats working at a PR agency. LPR intern responsibilities include but are not limited to research, copywriting, brainstorming, maintaining media lists, supporting events, maintaining clip reports, and minor administrative tasks.
