As such, the Assistant must be exceptional well-organized, detail-oriented, and focused. He/she must have prior experience managing multiple projects and tasks simultaneously.

In addition, we’re extremely busy. While we are committed to providing the training necessary for an Assistant who may not have worked in a public relations setting, we expect the Assistant to have prior experience working in a fast-paced office setting, and be familiar with commonly-accepted business practices.
