Responsibilities: As an Associate Customer Content Specialist based out of our Washington, D.C. bureau, you will set the foundation for a long and prosperous career with the global leader in news and information distribution for press releases. One of your main responsibilities will be to proofread press releases written by our clients for delivery to the media. You will not be writing pieces from scratch, but you will need a strong grasp of syntax, punctuation, and the English language in general to be a success at this job. Your razor-sharp attention to detail will be a prerequisite, as you edit, format, and handle various client requests, and other news content (e.g., photos, video). Your ability to think on your feet and prioritize tasks will serve you well in this fast-paced, deadline-driven environment. Your strong computer skills will enable you to quickly learn our internal system.
Our dynamic environment will keep you on your toes, so a flexible attitude and a strong customer-service approach will be needed. As the face (or voice) to the client, your outstanding communication skills and ability to grasp our clients’ needs will allow you to build long-lasting relationships and establish a professional rapport while quickly meeting customer demands. Key to continuing PR Newswire’s reputation for providing excellent customer service, your consultative approach will be essential as you answer clients’ questions and proactively recommend our solutions to engage their audience.
