Walker Sands is looking for a talented PR professional to join our team as a media relations specialist out of our Chicago office – hybrid. Our media relations specialists are responsible for developing media lists, conceptualizing pitches, writing press releases and preparing contributed articles.
You should have superb writing skills and an interest in conducting web research. You must have an obsession with grammar and the ability to take mediocre writing and make it stronger. If typos jump off the page at you, it is a good sign.
We would like you to have a strong interest in the media, trends, and what constitutes a good story. If you are a news addict and a journalist wannabe, you'll do well here. As part of our media relations staff, you will work on a small team for clients that specialize in B2B technology. You must be able to think on your feet and change gears quickly.
