You have great rapport with your media contacts, you know how to tailor a press list to the project, you write well, are highly organized, relentless with follow-up, and warmly diplomatic with first-time or seasoned authors.

You will also be responsible for entering all confirmed and received press coverage, as well as capturing and saving on-line media coverage for your projects.

General department responsibilities will include assisting on weekly event reports, bi-weekly and monthly publicity status reports, helping plan Author Event budgets on your titles for each season, and you will be expected to attend all NYC events for your authors. It is possible that you will also be tapped to attend BEA and Gift Shows.

You will work hard on great projects, as part of a collegial team. The atmosphere and the work are creative, but you will be an ideal fit if your work style is highly organized and very orderly. It is assumed that you are fluent in basic computer programs like MS Word, Excel, and Outlook Office. Ideally, you have experience with Publicity Assistant and Cision as well.
