Experience

Junior Publicist

ext.54 , Chicago

May 2015 - January 2015

As a junior publicist for a boutique agency, I was required to create press materials for over five clients in the lifestyle industry. Media monitoring and press clipping was a daily responsibility for all clients and their competitors. I interacted with clients to provide them updates on their industry and competitors. I engaged in weekly client calls and strategy meetings to brainstorm and execute campaigns. Each month I was expected to provide the clients with monthly reports detailing on executions of their strategy. The graphic designer, the other junior publicist and myself created social media strategies for each client's social media platforms. I researched industry trends on a daily basis to support the PR associate and the president in strategizing campaigns and activation.
