For nearly three decades, DKC has been a leading communications agency attracting the best and the brightest talent from around the country. Currently, we are searching for a trailblazing Account Supervisor to join a division in our New York office that encompasses a variety of sectors and industries, including Travel, Hospitality, select Lifestyle (ie, Health/Wellness and food/beverage that intersects with hotels/hospitality) and related Business/Corporate.

We're looking for a creative thinker and business strategist who has the media connections to move mountains; curiosity to work in exciting sectors and the right amount of energy and enthusiasm to help world-class teams take brands to new heights.

From our national committees focused on health & wellness, diversity and fun, to a hands-on-approach to training and career growth, DKC offers a wide range of options for career minded staff. Plus, we offer 401K match, cell phone reimbursement, an unlimited vacation and sick day policy, the latest technology for all digital natives and a welcoming environment that is all about perfecting the craft of communications.

Now, a little about you:
• Smart, energetic, savvy account leader with sophisticated media relations expertise and digital chops looking to join our rapidly expanding team.
• 5 -7 years' experience in public relations and integrated communications, preferably, with interest in travel, hospitality, health/wellness, business brands and corporate clients. Agency experience preferred.
• Proven success in developing and executing strategic communications programs with media relations at the core.
• Deep relationships with reporters/editors at national and local outlets.
• Understands and can study data, distill insights, and bring new ideas to the forefront, and translate that data into insights that can help set the stage for communications programming
• Comfortable working in a fast-paced environment and can roll with the punches (not literally! However, we do have a wellness club if you're into that)
• Has the motivation and attitude to mentor junior staff
• Able to foster new and significant media and industry relationships, while maintaining relationships with key media
• Excellent writing skills
• Relentless attention to detail and proven ability to manage multiple priorities simultaneously, bringing a sense of urgency to the task at hand
• Commitment to delivering outstanding client service, providing both strategic counsel and hands-on results
• Ability to think both analytically and creatively
• Entrepreneurial spirit and desire to be a part of team
