Publicity Associate

Chicago Review Press (CRP) is seeking a full-time Publicity Associate to join its dynamic and successful publicity department, which represents high quality trade non-fiction and fiction titles for adults and children.

The Publicity Associate’s primary purpose will be to coordinate and execute mid-size publicity campaigns with print, online, and broadcast components for more than twenty CRP titles per year. Additional job responsibilities include frequent collaboration with the marketing and social media departments on cross-promotional efforts, and handling ongoing departmental duties as needed, with guidance from the Publicity Manager and Publisher. The position requires regular media and author interaction, a basic understanding of the various types of media, stellar communication and organizational skills, and a drive for publicity results that impact sales.

Prior publicity experience is not required for this position, but the ideal candidate will be an excellent written and verbal communicator and a motivated self-starter with exceptional organizational skills, a strong eye for detail and the ability to prioritize and multi-task efficiently. Experience with Cision software and Microsoft’s CRM program are a plus but are not required. A genuine enthusiasm for books is a must.

To apply, please send a cover letter, resume, two references and a recent writing sample to Mark Saavedra (msaavedra@ipgbook.com). No phone calls please.
