The Plot Thickens: Job Description

The typical intern at The Hoffman Agency will be assigned to a number of client accounts to provide team support very similar to what an account coordinator would provide. In other words, you get to jump in with both feet on assignments such as:

  • Media monitoring: Scan for client media coverage and compile media coverage reports to provide to clients
  • Speaking and awards: Create and update yearly calendars with speaking and awards opportunities, pull together abstracts and awards submission drafts, and submit the abstracts to nominate the company or product
  • Media relations: Monitor editorial opportunities and flag them to the team, research media contacts, compile media contact lists for pitching, draft media pitches, reach out to reporters, and create reporter briefing sheets
  • Social media: Research and draft content to submit to client social media platforms
  • New business: Pull together preliminary research to contribute to new business pitches
  • Spirit committee: Be part of the Hoffman spirit committee to help plan company events or special treats
  • Content creation: Draft press releases and PowerPoint presentations for client speaking programs
  • Reporting: Compile monthly metrics reports and end-of-the-month reports

  • Critical thinking
  • Accountability
  • Creativity
  • Curiosity
  • Fearlessness (of trying new things)
  • Initiative
  • Enthusiasm for learning
  • Interest in technology
  • Teamwork

This is a paid, full-time internship.

Flexibility and willingness to go beyond the call of duty are highly valued and rewarded.

Come join us and be on the cutting edge of communications. We value diverse thinking, and we regularly push the boundaries of PR.
