Public Relations Account Executive

CVR is growing our Public Relations team and needs a media relations and communications Account Executive to help tell client stories. If you have 5-7 years of experience, or the writing skills to convince us (be brief) that your talent outweighs experience, let's talk.

You must be ready to dive in and learn new industries, have a nose for news, and take the initiative in suggesting publicity strategies, story angles, and other marketing opportunities. Building and maintaining relationships with journalists – local, national, and in the trade media – will be critical. Agency experience is a plus. 

Qualified candidates will be responsible for developing newsworthy pitches, researching media outlets, building strategic media lists and editorial calendars, and understanding industry trends in support of ongoing media relations efforts. This position will be integral to CVR’s PR team. Candidate must be versatile, hard-working, and self-starting. This person will be expected to independently manage key projects, media campaigns, and special initiatives for various clients. A current and reliable network of press contacts and proven experience securing media placements is preferred.

Writers gonna write. Be prepared to be prolific – press releases, op-eds, press kits, articles, blogs, newsletters, and client communications . . . you name it, you’ll write it.
