Experienced PR Pro

Experienced PR Pro

Veracity, a boutique PR company based in Portland, Ore., is looking to bring in an experienced PR professional. This is an opportunity for someone who wants to fulfill ongoing, permanent work with a steady workflow & payment coming down the pipeline but operating a bit more independently on a part-time contract basis. You’d be remotely pitching and maintaining media relationships on behalf of a few clients, although in-person meetings can be accommodated.

We will provide the campaigns and parameters you are to place. The success of the job will be measured by how many placements are garnered. A set role of expectations would be fulfilled, measured in terms of PR placements and results. You must have a proven track record of garnering high-profile PR placements, with skills in both writing and media follow through. Also, a history of success while operating independently is a plus.

To apply: email your qualifications and writing samples (press release and blog post) to careers(at)veracityagency.com.

What is Veracity?

Veracity is a boutique marketing agency that takes pride in creating engaging campaigns that help our clients get noticed. We put our story-telling hats on to uncover how we can break through the clutter. Then we get busy putting the most appropriate marketing discipline — whether that is public relations, social media, media buying, email marketing or website development — to work for our clients.

 

Why Should You Care?

Making coffee will only get you so far. Sure, you’ll always need to do that kind of work as you start (or switch) careers, but this small, client-centric firm needs help on the real work. We’d rather have you writing press releases, strategizing social media content and proofing creative briefs than wasting your talents on errands.

You’ll learn a ton shadowing us as we work with long-establish and fast-growing clients; plus some fun events. We are rising and would always rather promote from within.

Grow up with us at Veracity.
