Cincinnati’s Largest PR Firm Looking for Next Great PR Professional
Eisen Unveils ‘Cincinnati’s Next Top PR Person’ Competition, Winner Earns Job
Cincinnati, OH – November 18, 2009 – No question the job market is tight, and in the public relations and marketing industry, the competition to land a job has never been more challenging. To that end, Cincinnati public relations firm Eisen Marketing Group has developed an innovative new program, NexPhase, that combines elements from “The Apprentice,” “Hell’s Kitchen,” and “Survivor” – with the winner getting a paid gig at one of Cincinnati’s best places to work.
Eisen president Rodger Roeser says, “Right now, most of my competitors are cutting jobs or shutting their doors altogether, while our firm continues to grow. As a result, however, we are inundated by those seeking a job and more often than not, looking through resumes, stuffy job interviews and review of work product is not that helpful. I’m not looking for the next okay agency person, I’m looking for the next rock star, and in true ‘pr guy fashion,’ I like to do something fun that also makes some waves.”
The competition is open to all graduating seniors (May/June 2010) or recent graduates from 2009. Those interested should apply online at www.EisenPR.com and click on the ‘careers’ tab. Submissions are open through December 17th. From the submissions, 12 finalists will be selected who will then begin the three week NexPhase competition starting Wednesday, January 20th. The field will ultimately be narrowed to one winner. People will be able to follow along on an online webisode series, as well as other specially designated NexPhase social media sites featuring EMG and the competitors sharing the good, the bad and the ugly from the competition.
