Allen & Gerritsen Associate, Public Relations in Boston, Massachusetts

Recently graduated and eager to launch your career in PR at an award-winning agency? Allen & Gerritsen is seeking an entry-level aspiring public relations star to join its Boston office (although we are implementing a hybrid WFH model) as an Associate, Public Relations. The Associate will be an integral member of a collaborative public relations and social media practice that exists within a top independent, full-service advertising agency. This is a unique opportunity to gain early hands-on experience at an established agency, learning the ropes from a collaborative team of PR pros across a wide range of industries and national brands.

We want to hear from you if:

  • You’ve had at least one PR agency internship with experience developing media lists, drafting press materials (pitches, press releases, etc.) and supporting client-facing monitoring and reporting activities.

  • You’re excited for the opportunity to learn and pivot between multiple clients, industries and projects. A&G is not a specialty shop; you may spend your day pitching consumer wellness products and home remodeling tips in the morning, and announcing renewable energy partnerships and civil rights initiatives in the afternoon. We thrive in variety!

  • You love social media and staying up-to-date on platform trends and developments from Instagram to TikTok to Twitch.

  • You’re a self-starter who can lead on tasks, but you’re still eager to learn from your broader team.

  • You love to write, you love to consume the news and you’re hungry to land a story — and have no hesitations calling reporters on the phone to sell in your pitch.

Day-to-day responsibilities will include:

  • Supporting media relations efforts across clients, including identification of media trends, media list development and dedicated outreach

  • Leading on critical administrative duties to support account organization, including monitoring and reporting, pitch/coverage trackers and status documents

  • Actively engaging in cross-discipline and client calls

  • Developing social media content calendars and community management for a variety of clients

  • Collaborating with the broader PR team to brainstorm, develop and implement campaign strategies and tactics

  • Mentoring high school and college interns

Qualifications we’re seeking:

  • Strong writing skills; writing samples and a writing test will be required

  • At least one PR internship experience, agency preferred

  • Impeccable attention to detail and strong research skills

  • Working knowledge of PR and influencer tools including Critical Mention and Muck Rack

  • Self-motivated disposition

  • Outgoing personality
