  • Drafting press releases, e-newsletters, bios, op-eds, feature articles, mailers, blogs, etc.
  • Efficiently researching industry trends, editorial calendars and gathering other relevant information for planning and evaluation.
  • Maintaining and updating media center on Self-Help internal and external facing websites

    WHAT You'll Need:

    • Bachelor's degree in Public Relations, Communications, Journalism, Media Studies, Marketing or other related field OR equivalent related experience.
    • 3-years of experience working with public relations and media.

    • Experience using media monitoring platforms, including Cision, Meltwater, Lexus Nexis, or Trendkite
    • Bi-lingual speaker is a plus
