Junior Account Executive – Consumer & Lifestyle Brands
First, a little bit about us:
Litzky Public Relations is a boutique agency on the Hoboken waterfront (it’s a pretty amazing view). We are a close-knit team of 25 PR superstars known for our results-focused approach and exceptional client services. We are savvy storytellers and media matchmakers; big thinkers and bold doers. We love what we do – and have a lot of fun doing it. And, we’re in search of a Junior Account Executive looking to join our team and support some of the world’s most iconic consumer brands.
Now, a little bit about you:
You’re ready to further your career in public relations. You’ve gained between 2-3 years of public relations experience through an agency or corporate position, and have an educational background studying public relations, communications, journalism, marketing, or a related field.
You’re a creative writer and thinker. From brainstorming unique news hooks and inspirational brand campaigns to clever ideas for product mailers and well written press materials, you have a flair for creativity and add it into all your work.
You’re a team player. You have the ability to work independently but enjoy a team environment. You are not afraid to speak up and have the ability to communicate effectively.
You know what makes a great pitch and who to send it to. You have media relations experience from your previous position(s), including reaching out and establishing connections with relevant contacts. You have a keen interest in uncovering contacts to build media lists, networking with editors/producers to build upon these relationships, and enjoy monitoring for media placements to demonstrate success.
You are social media savvy. You are on top of the latest social media trends and have a list of influencers you regularly follow. You love discovering up-and-coming personalities across platforms like YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok and matching them with your clients’ needs.
You thrive in a fast-paced environment. You diligently meet deadlines, and know how to multitask and shift gears when priorities change (which they can, very quickly!).
How you’ll make an impact:
You’ll be the foundational support for your team. You’ll keep your team organized, as you’ll be responsible for product inventory, supporting the execution of events, assembling mailers, maintaining coverage trackers, assisting with client reports, mentoring interns and colleagues, client communications, and more.
You’ll create long-lasting relationships with media and influencer contacts. A big part of your day will be proactive media relations – identifying and pitching press and influencers. PR is never one and done; you’ll build long lasting relationships with the contacts you work with and uncover new contacts along the way.
You’ll become an expert at everything. We wear many hats. One day you’re packing up product mailers, the next you are running an influencer campaign, and the following day you’re mingling with top tier media at a client event. No two days are ever the same.
Your voice will be heard. We strive to provide a collaborative, creative environment where each person feels encouraged to contribute to our processes, decisions, planning, and culture.
Why you’ll love it here:
The benefits are great. In addition to a competitive salary base and compensation plan, we offer a great health insurance program. Employees are also eligible for long and short term disability benefits, life insurance, a medical flexible spending account, and a 401k program.
The perks are pretty good, too. We’re a dog-friendly office with yoga on Wednesdays and bagels on Fridays. We love to get together in and out of the office, and find lots of reasons to celebrate throughout the year – from summer happy hours to holiday cookie swaps to National Donut Day (we love snacks, too).

We have an amazing schedule. Flex hours, two work-from-home days each month, paid holidays, two weeks paid vacation, summer Fridays, and time to rest and recharge while the office is closed between Christmas and New Year’s.
We give back to our community. Employees are encouraged to participate in an agency-led volunteer project each quarter and one community service day each year.
There’s room for growth. We invest in our team and are seriously committed to professional advancement. Need proof? The President of our agency started out as an LPR intern.
