Well-written copy is an important element of successful PR efforts, especially with a continuing emphasis on brand journalism and content marketing.
Communications professionals who can write well stand a higher chance to see their stories in print. They’re also more likely to secure careers creating content for others.
This week’s featured job listing could be just the thing for a PR pro with the skill to pen a phrase. NewsCred is looking for a senior editor in New York.
NewsCred bills itself as the world’s leading content marketing platform, and creates content for Pepsi, Pfizer, Dell, Diageo, Spotify and other brands in order to boost brand appeal and capture audience attention.
The right candidate will join more than 180 people who currently work for NewsCred, and will be part of the organization’s vision, as stated below:
We’re not making small changes; we’re building technology to completely rethink how people create, consume, and share their stories with the world.
Candidates should have a keen understanding of various clients’ goals, guidelines and resources, as well as a talent for discovering stories. You should also have at least three years of experience editing Web content and experience managing content production.
The position calls for working with NewsCred’s team of writers, so candidates should have experience with legal releases, deadlines and successful pitching techniques. Candidates that have experience writing for financial or health care clients will have a leg up on the competition.
It’s not the only company looking for communications pros who can write well. CGI Federal is looking for senior writer and editor in Virginia, Fisher-Price seeks a copy editor in New York and Ketchum is hiring a copywriter in North Carolina.
