We think we’re an awesome company filled with awesome people (and we’re pretty sure we’re right). We are hiring now for a new Account Manager position, and some people want to know why they should come and work with us.

2. We adapt with the times.
Public relations isn’t just getting a story in the newspaper or on TV, though that is still very important. It’s working with bloggers and on social media. It’s providing effective and search engine-optimized content for use online. It’s using inbound marketing to draw customers to clients’ websites. It’s effectively utilizing PPC and other advertising. It’s tracking visits, clicks and other engagement, and using the analysis to create more compelling and informative content. And more. Plus, we’re not afraid to test and incorporate new technology – though we don’t adopt something just because it’s the latest, greatest thing, but if it will support and enhance the work we are already doing.
3. We are in East Nashville.
We have a hip space in the hip area of town. We’re just that cool.
4. We’re growing.
We have have been consistently growing for the last few years and are hiring right now. That brings a real sense of excitement to our group and makes it an ideal time to join our team.
5. We love celebrations.

6. We promote from within.
We love to see our employees grow and we recognize it and support it. As our company expands, we move our own people up our internal ladder.
7. We won’t let you get bored.

And we offer flexspace, so our people can work from other locations a couple of days each month – be it your favorite coffee shop, somewhere in Europe or right at home.
We believe our amazing team is what helps us excel.
8. We’re constantly learning.
From using new tools to pitching an unfamiliar medium to attending conferences and webinars to understanding a new industry inside and out, we are constantly expanding our knowledge and applying it to drive our clients and our company forward. That’s why everyone here gets a budget for professional development.
9. We trust our employees to do what needs to be done.
