IMPORTANT: Please read this entire posting BEFORE applying, thank you!
We are a boutique PR company in our 8th year of business, specializing in fashion, beauty and lifestyle brands. We are looking to make an immediate hire of a smart, savvy beauty and lifestyle publicist with 2-3 years of solid PR experience in New York (not including internships). Compensation will be commensurate with experience.
Our clients are internationally recognized fashion, beauty and lifestyle brands. You must have experience pitching new products and story angles to beauty editors, and have some established relationships/contacts in the media. Strong communication and organization skills are key, as well as a critical and analytical strategic approach to your PR practices
You’ll be joining a small team of dedicated PR professionals that work hard and also have a lot of fun. We occupy a 3,000 square foot fashion and beauty showroom loft in the Financial District (close to every train line). If you are looking for a corporate desk job, this is not the position for you.

We are relaxed people, but take our work very seriously and need someone who takes great pride in all aspects of their work and understands the nuances of our industry. You should have an entrepreneurial mindset, viewing your work as an extension of your personal brand. There is immense room for growth, with potential to work on fashion, home and other lifestyle brands in our diverse roster of clients.
The ideal candidate will be creative, energetic and extremely driven. You must have excellent writing skills (you write eloquently and intelligently both in grammar and content) and pay the utmost attention to detail. You must be both fashion and media conscious with an evident sense of modern contemporary style.
