Qualifications

Education & Experience
Bachelor's degree in a relevant field, and a bit of working experience certainly wouldn’t hurt. Either way, you should be wicked smaht.

A winning personality
There should be a radiant halo of sunshine and effervescent joy surrounding you.

A passion for classical music and general aesthetics
We work to bring beauty to a world that desperately needs it, so if that doesn't excite you then you're in the wrong place my friend.

Resourcefulness
Every day will present new adventures and challenges, and while you’ll have plenty of support in all that you do, we want someone who can learn how to learn, and become ever more capable of meeting future challenges on their own. Basically you should be like the classical music MacGyver (too young for the reference? Google it.)

Adaptability, and a desire to learn new skills
We are not your granddaddy’s PR firm. We incorporate a proprietary mix of traditional and digital media strategies and tactics that have brought us to the top of the industry in a few short years. We’re building the future, and in doing so we need to pivot and adapt in the directions where we find growth. So you need to be able to move like us if you want to be a fit…

Insanely great communication skills
It should be a giddy pleasure to interact with you. People should jump out of bed each morning with a dizzying anticipation at the thought of hearing your sweet, sweet voice.

Laser-like attention to detail
You should be person who catches the little things that other people miss, especially when it comes to proofreading (did you catch the missing “the” at the start of this sentence? Good. Good for you.)

Hyper-efficiency
You should get a thrill out of doing things in the quickest way possible. If you like keyboard shortcuts, you're going to do very well here

Borderline-obsessive organization
Do you enjoy checking tasks off of your to do list? Does the word "workflow" perk your ears? You’re in the right place.

Ability to multi-task
You're going to be keeping a lot of plates spinning at the same time, and you need to be comfortable staying on top of everything and keeping several different projects in your mind all at once

Tech-savvy
We're cutting-edge and you should be too, a familiarity with all things digital and media-oriented are a must, or you should at least be a quick study

A flexible schedule
We have a lot of concerts and events, an you need to be willing to work nights and weekends to help cover them. It can be intense at times, but at the same time, your *job* is to *listen to incredible music*…so it’s not that terrible.

Social Media experience
The interwebs should fascinate you, and the power of social media should be something that inspires and energizes you (beyond just funny GIFs and cat photos)

Website-building experience
Ideally you've had experience building websites, and maybe even have some CSS/HTML coding under your belt – though if not, you shall learn, young Padawan.
