Junior Publicist

Location: USA Type: Full-time

Allyson Conklin Public Relations (ACPR) is a ten-year-old boutique public relations agency for beauty, home, and lifestyle brands. We're communicators, storytellers, and connectors committed to creating intentional awareness and driving influence for new and heritage brands through a holistic communications approach. We're known for our earned media and influencer relations (you can find our clients in VOGUE online, MyDomaine, Cosmopolitan, Real Simple, Apartment Therapy, and more)-but that's not all we do. Our 360-degree approach is what gives us (and our clients) an edge. From PR and brand partnerships to social media and founder-to-founder consulting, our clients consider us as an extension of their teams, and the hype girls they've always dreamed of having. We're a small but mighty, tight knit team who is as intuitive as we are strategic, ultra-collaborative (#youcansitwithus), appreciates the hustle as much as we do stillness, walks the walk, and thrives in a fast paced environment where no two days are ever the same.
