The Glen Echo Group, a DC-based boutique public affairs firm, seeks a junior communications professional to help support our fast-growing client base. Our ideal candidate will have prior agency experience and a proven track record in developing and implementing successful media relations’ campaigns.


We do (almost) everything, so you will too. We pride ourselves on getting things done for clients – without the bureaucracy or baggage of the big firms:

• Whether it’s a policy issue or product launch, you will be responsible for hearing what a client needs and demonstrating a commitment to understanding the industry and issues.
• We offer more than public relations; you’ll participate in strategy development for client campaigns based on their priorities including media relations, writing, social media, executive positioning and corporate reputation and crisis communications.
• And you’ll regularly interact with clients, teams, and outside consultants.

• You’ll help us all be smarter, reviewing ongoing media coverage, Hill activities and event strategies of clients’ issues and making strategic recommendations based on the information.

• You will be responsible for both the substantial and mundane tasks associated with media relations from creating strategic communications outreach plans and messaging to updating press lists and tracking media coverage.
• And you’ll write – a lot, authoring press releases, statements, web content, speaking abstracts, etc.

• You will cultivate strong and trusted relationships with media and third party allies, garnering positive attention for clients and advancing our clients’ goals.
