PR Hacker PR Account Executive & Publicist in Austin, Texas
Do you enjoy the thrill of having your email inbox ?blow up? with interview requests from the world's top journalists? Are you able to jump on the phone and convince a producer from The Today Show why your client is the next Mark Zuckerberg? Would you love to turn on the TV or walk down the supermarket aisle and hear everyone talking about your creative campaign? Would you love to call up a startup CEO to tell her that you've just secured The New York Times placement that will change her life?
