Freelancer Publicist
TOP Agency
Toronto, ON
Do you enjoy the thrill of having your email inbox “blow up” with interview requests from the world's top journalists? Are you a former full-time PR professional who can still make important client contributions but would rather work in a freelance or part-time capacity? Do you have a personal network of media contacts in Canada?

If the person we just described sounds like you, we would love to have you join us as a Freelance Publicist.
Because our headquarters are in San Francisco but do substantial work in Canada, we're looking to expand our presence. We need a responsive, detail-oriented publicist who can pitch, prep, and respond to media requests.

At PR Hacker, the PR division of TOP Agency, we're re-imagining everything a PR firm can be. With our story-based, data-driven, and viral-optimized approach, you'll have the tools to turn share-worthy ideas into viral campaigns on behalf of Silicon Valley's top tech startups as well big brands like Budweiser, Mercedes-Benz, Smuckers, and Milk-Bone.

Location and Hours:
Part-time: This is a great position for someone who doesn't want the 9-5 grind, but still wants to remain in the game. Target hours to start are 5 to 15 hours per week.
Canada based: This is primarily a position to work from home.

Bonus Points:
Your own personal network of potential Mexican media and client contacts
Experience working on the media side as a print or broadcast journalist
