30 jobs in the PR and marketing world

This week’s featured listings highlight nonprofit careers that can make a difference in the world.


For lovers of aquatic animals and conservation initiatives, Shedd Aquarium in Chicago is the place to be.

More than 32,000 animals reside at the aquarium, including turtles, sea otters, penguins, sharks, dolphins, fish, frogs and the world’s most rare iguana species. The aquarium boasts “one of the largest and most diverse collections of aquatic animals in the world.”

More than 2 million people visit each year to see what is one of the world’s largest indoor aquariums, but that’s not all the organization is known for. Shedd Aquarium also is home to various conservation programs, such as Project Seahorse, Great Lakes conservation and the Right Bite Sustainable Seafood Program.

PR pros looking to make a difference in the world can be part of Shedd Aquarium’s programs with a new communications and PR coordinator opening.

The position works alongside the aquarium’s director of communications and PR to develop, support, manage and integrate PR and marketing strategies. Candidates should have experience with brand storytelling, crisis management and media training.

Interested candidates should be comfortable as an aquarium spokesperson when opportunities arise and have a history of successful media relations pitching. The position calls for securing media placements for the aquarium’s conservation, sustainability and animal care programs.

Animal-loving candidates farther south can apply with the Houston SPCA; they’re looking for an e-communications manager. It’s not the only nonprofit communications position in Texas: Houston’s YMCA has a regional marketing communications manager opening, and March of Dimes is looking for a community campaign and communications coordinator in Dallas.

Outside the Lone Star State, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has a social media manager position open in Maryland, UNICEF is seeking a senior web project manager in New York, and American Red Cross has a regional chief external affairs officer opening.
