Litzky Public Relations: Junior Account Executive

A little bit about us:

LPR is a boutique communications agency based in Hoboken, NJ. Named to Inc. Best Workplaces 2022, PR Week Best Place to Work 2021 and PRSA Top Places to Work 2020, we are 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 exceptional Junior Account Executive to join our team and represent key consumer and lifestyle accounts for some of the world’s most iconic brands.

Note: LPR has a hybrid work policy. Employees must be vaccinated and are required to work in our Hoboken co-working space every other ThursdayLPR provides employees with laptop, monitor, and software to work from home; the agency also pays for employee cell phone bills. 

Now, a little bit about you:

You love a good story. You’re a gifted storyteller and relationship builder. You’re dedicated to finding the right contact to cover your clients andthink creatively about how to get them interested. You’re always brainstorming news hooks, creative partnerships, engaging experiences, and smart campaigns for your clients.

You are motivated. Your passion and excitement for the field of public relations directly carries over into your drive to further your career. You’re motivated to land a great placement, find the perfect influencer partner, be an ally for your team, and deliver results for your clients.

You’re passionate about pop culture. You stay current on news and up to date on entertainment and trends: movies, TV, celebrities, and fashion. 

You’re social media savvy. From YouTube creators to Instagram influencers to the latest TikTok dance, you have a knack for discovering social media stars and fostering relationships with them. You tend to know which trends or products are hot before they go viral.

How you’ll make an impact:

You’ll be a leader. You’ll mentor junior staff, counsel your clients, and collaborate with your contacts to get coverage. You’ll work with your account director to develop strategy and oversee execution, managing timelines and budgets to make sure work gets done on time and at cost. 

You’ll be the foundational support for your team. You’ll keep your team organized, build media lists, support events, maintain coverage trackers, assist with client reports, participate in client communications, and mentor colleagues and interns.

You’ll create long-lasting relationships. A big part of your day will be proactive media relations and influencer engagement – identifying the right contact, writing the perfect pitch, and securing top tier placements. You’ll build long lasting relationships with the contacts you work with and uncover new contacts along the way. 

You’ll become an expert at everything. We wear many hats. One day you’re packing up media mailers, the next you are running an influencer campaign, and the following day you’re mingling with top tier media at an event. No two days are ever the same.

You’ll be part of a team. 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:

We offer great benefits. In addition to a competitive salary base and compensation plan, we offer a great health insurance program. Employees are also eligible for long and short term disability benefits, life insurance, a medical flexible spending account, and a 401k program.

We believe life comes first. Hybrid work policy, flex hours, paid holidays, generous paid vacation time, up to 20 weeks parental leave for those who need it, and time to rest and recharge while we are closed between Christmas and New Year’s. We do not count sick days (for physical or mental health). Oh, and did we mention that you get PTO for your birthday and the agency closes at 1pm on Fridays – all year long?!

We have fun. A lot of fun. We love to get together and find lots of reasons to celebrate throughout the year. A tie-dye themed pizza party, a murder mystery “date night,” and a holiday cookie swap are just a few examples from this last year alone!

We give back to our community. Employees are encouraged to participate in agency-led volunteer projects throughout the year.

We celebrate each other. During our monthly ‘Big Thinkers, Bold Doers’ happy hours, employees give kudos and share gratitude with those who gave them a helping hand. We also host monthly LPR Happenings, a catered lunch where we highlight recent successes and share helpful insights.

We provide room for growth. We invest in our team and are seriously committed to professional advancement (our weekly StormShops and monthly Litzky Labs provide the foundation). Need proof? The President of our agency started out as an LPR intern.
