COMMUNICATIONS ACCOUNT ASSOCIATE

RALLY is seeking a Communications Account Associate to join our firm. The Communications Account Associate is responsible for providing support to RALLY client project team members in the strategic development and implementation of client’s communications campaigns. Each client project team gets a unique RALLY team that usually consists of 2-4 RALLY'ers, an account lead, and a principal. Each RALLY'er usually works on several project teams at a time with a unique client mix.

The Communications Account Associate is a junior-level position responsible for providing support to RALLY mid- and senior-level team members in the strategic development and implementation of client projects. Associates are fully integrated on account teams and are expected to think creatively and independently and take ownership of assigned projects. Primary responsibilities include: research, writing, pitching stories to reporters, social media and administrative tasks. Since we are a small firm, Associates are also exposed to a wide variety of tasks and issue areas beyond their primary responsibilities.

No two days at RALLY are the same, but your day might start by prepping for an upcoming focus group before drafting the agenda for an upcoming client meeting. Another day might include cranking out the first draft of a press release in a crisis scenario, grabbing coffee with a colleague, or helping to draft a new business proposal on a short turnaround time. A different account may need you to help to coordinate a video shoot, pitch a reporter on a new campaign launch, or draft social media content for a client.
