Account Executive, Resound Marketing, Princeton, NJ

Resound Marketing is seeking an Account Executive with 1-2 years experience (Annual Salary: $28,000.00 - $35,000.00)

Dynamic, growing PR agency in downtown Princeton, NJ seeks a savvy and enthusiastic individual who has worked in a PR agency environment, and is looking to build a career in the industry.

Must be familiar with the PR agency setting through work and/or internship experience. We are specifically looking for public relations experience, not sales/marketing/advertising. Social media experience is a plus, but not enough if that's all you've done.

If you are ready to emerge from behind the scenes, and increase client interaction and demonstrate your creativity -- this is the spot for you.

We are a busy agency looking for someone who can jump right in and make an impact by securing media coverage and managing account activities for our clients across a range of industries (consumer products, green/eco,
parenting/baby, tech, web, finance, business services).

Here is the check-list of traits you should have:
- You are not afraid of making phone calls to busy journalists
- You can craft a sharp, attention-getting media pitch
- You are skilled at multi-tasking and staying on top of small details

- You know your way around PR tools such as Cision and BurrellesLuce
- You understand that our job is more just than filling a clip book--it's helping companies grow
- Conducting media research, tracking press opportunities, creating
client reports, and compiling clip books are also part of the job

Job Requirements:
- 1-3 years of agency experience
- Writing ability
- Assertiveness
- Confidence
- Poise

Contact: To apply, send your resume along with a cover letter explaining how you are a great fit for this position to Pitching and copywriting is essential to the job, so show it with a cover letter that is tailored (aka, not a canned letter you would sent to 20 agencies). Feel free to include links to work samples and press coverage as available. Be sure to include salary requirements/history - no applications will be considered without it.
