PR Licensed to Thrill

It might seem surprising, but the MIPAA JobSearch service has had a number of really interesting job opportunities recently.  These are primarily for those with a couple of years experience – but graduates with placement experience are also wanted.  The jobs are also often offered with short-term contracts – although if you are starting out in your career, such opportunities are a great addition to the CV/resume.

The vacancies we hear about seem to fill very quickly, as there is clearly no shortage of good young talent in the marketplace.  Still it is encouraging to see that even in the hard-hit motor industry, PR is keen to identify and recruit fresh faces. 

Opportunities have been available for in-house posts and with consultancies – and social/new media skills are particularly sought-after.

The latest vacancy registered with MIPAA seems to reflect the glamour of the business – although I should warn any applicant that my own experience of motor industry PR is a lot of hard graft as well as many fun moments.

But, I couldn’t resist pitching it for the MIPAA website:

If you can make a mean martini and are shaken not stirred by the dramas of motor industry PR, then Aston Martin may just have the job for you.  MIPAA JobSearch has details of a vacancy for a qualified Press Officer (temporary contract) who has a minimum of two years experience with automotive or luxury brands.  See:  JobSearch.
