About Himmelrich
Himmelrich PR is an award-winning public relations firm with a very cool office in the historic Meadow Mill building in the Woodberry/Hampden section of Baltimore City. The firm’s local and national clients include attractions and hotels, professional services firms, local and national trade associations, museums, and non-profit organizations. While the tone of the office is informal, creative and fun, we provide the professional and sophisticated work, and adopt the more formal manner, that our clients’ expect.

About the Summer Public Relations Assistant
The Assistant is a critical member of our three-person team. He/she will assume the bulk of the responsibility for “getting work out the door” – taking care of the details and logistics for moving projects forward. 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.
