Prosek Partners is not your average PR agency. The firm’s culture is flat and fast-paced like a newsroom. Employees develop an “owner’s mindset,” delighting clients with top-quality service, fresh ideas and flawless execution. They listen, strategize, question and create in order to learn what makes each client special and broadcast it to the world.
The firm takes pride in being both a team-oriented agency and an “Army of Entrepreneurs” – a model coined by CEO Jennifer Prosek that encourages employees to pursue their passions and forge career paths that are personally and professionally satisfying. Prosek’s “Army of Entrepreneurs” mindset has led to new practice groups, innovative offerings and a hardworking but fun and creative culture.
Staff members work together in a collegial atmosphere that breeds professional respect and friendship. In particular, Prosek’s Public Relations Development Program is designed for recent college graduates who are interested in starting a career in the PR industry. Participants in this program are referred to as “Prosek Apprentices,” and the firm’s creative, entrepreneurial culture attracts and retains the most talented professionals.
Prosek’s most successful employees are those who are curious, adaptive and driven to be the best. If you are curious about the PR industry, Prosek’s Public Relations Development Program, or what a “day in the life” is like for those working at the firm, attend this information session to hear more!
