Reingold - Communications Associate

Reingold, a leading Washington metropolitan consulting firm, offers an outstanding opportunity for an entry-level communications professional to assist in the development of cutting-edge social marketing, public relations, and advertising campaigns. Prestige clients include associations, educational institutions, government agencies, corporations, and nonprofit organizations.

We’re looking for the usual things: intelligence, creativity, experience, management acumen, rave reviews, and someone who can write like the Dickens! But we’re also looking for much more: entrepreneurial initiative, balance, willingness to work and think hard, commitment to the team, practical perfectionism, a sense of humor, discipline, and eagerness to chart unfamiliar territory. Our work involves the full range of organizational development services, including creative planning, new program/product research, writing, and managing client communications, promotions, and public relations, establishing and maintaining relationships.

This position demands a versatile self-starter with a strong intellect and initiative, total reliability, and top-flight communication skills. Writing talent is absolutely essential. The successful candidate will have knowledge of market research, social media and media relations,
and communications planning. A bachelor’s degree required, and two to five years’ experience in media relations, public relations, or a related field essential. It’s an ideal position for candidates with several related internship experiences. We offer creative freedom, a supportive work environment, and challenging client assignments.
Salary is commensurate with experience.

Please email resume, cover letter, and two communications writing samples to or fax to 703.299.2424. No phone calls.
Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer; Veterans are encouraged to apply.
