This is a guest post by Heather R. Huhman. Heather is the media relations manager at a national health care professional association. She is also the entry-level careers columnist for Examiner.com, a career expert for the CAREEREALISM Twitter Advice Project, the job search expert for Campus Calm and author of the e-book “Gen Y Meets the Workforce: Launching Your Career During Economic Uncertainty.”
Described in a leading trade magazine as a group of “type a-plus personalities” with a “BS-free approach,” New York City based 5W Public Relations touts a diverse client list—ranging from Anheuser Busch to Barnes & Noble Online to Snoop Dogg and Ice Cube. Interested in corporate communications? They’ve got it. Sports and entertainment, perhaps? They’ve got that, too. Health care, crisis communications—the list goes on. I love the ambition and overwhelming success of 5WPR, which has grown from a one-person firm with three clients in 2003 to the 21st largest independent PR firm and 23rd largest PR firm overall in the U.S. with revenue exceeding $11.5 million today. Even more impressive, perhaps, is that 5WPR’s CEO was recently named to both the Advertising Age’s and PRWeek’s “40 Under 40” lists. Want to learn more about this young leader? Check out his blog or follow him on Twitter. What a great environment in which to learn the ropes of the PR business—alongside a group of young professionals with an average age of 26.
For three consecutive years, 5WPR has been named a “best place to work.” According to their Careers section, the firm “ranked in the top five in the country when employees were asked whether morale at their agency was high and whether they found their work intellectually stimulating.” 5WPR boasts “one of the lowest turnovers in the industry” and “hard work is rewarded.”
Currently, 5WPR has an opening for an Account Coordinator in its Consumer Department. The position requires at least two previous public relations internships, strong writing skills, a creative and energetic personality, and an individual who is detail-oriented and able to work in a face-paced environment. Looking at the long description of job responsibilities, I can tell that the Account Coordinator will play a key role as a member of the 5WPR team. (There’s also an Account Executive position available, but it requires more than just internship experience.)
Interested? Send your cover letter, résumé and writing samples to David Gaspin, Director of Human Resources, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, follow him on Twitter @5WPRJobs for application tips and advance notice of future openings.
