This is a full-time, onsite position in Parsippany, NJ.
A client of mine in New Jersey is on a quest to remake the liquor industry, and they need a smart blogger/social PR marketer to lay the groundwork for their PR and Branding campaign.
What I really need is someone smart, curious, a good writer, a good researcher, and at least willing to learn how to push product. You must have a dream of branding a product nationally. And you have to live or commute to Parsippany every day. Your hours are flexible, but you're always on call. No 9-to-5'ers. So if you get a call on Sunday to come in or work on something - the answer is yes. If you decide you don't want to come into the office until 12, that's fine too. As long as the work is done, you're good to go.
The client is a new spirits company that sells primarily through retail wine and spirits stores, which means that your primary job will be branding and content creation. If you have experience pushing product, that would be great, but I'm more concerned with your ability to write to deadline, take direction, and actually be invested in what you do. This isn't just pushing something out through Facebook - it's communicating with audience that will be very interested in the claims you'll make. So while you're at it, being smart would be nice.
Onsite each day, writing and reading and posting and designing and tracking - you'll have a high visibility position, but you'll also be the first hire, working in the office of a global conglomerate. It's not suit and tie, but it's not shorts and flip flops either.
