JOB OF THE WEEK: U.S. Senate (Democrat), Press Secretary
If you answered yes and you are an outstanding writer with strong media skills, we are looking for you.
A Progressive U.S. Senator from Maryland is seeking a state-based Press Secretary.
In addition to excellent writing skills under fast-changing deadlines, ideal candidates should be self-motivated and detail oriented. A minimum of two years working with or in media is required.

Day-to-day responsibilities include drafting media releases/advisories and other press materials, maintaining press contact lists, event development and advance, creating social media content, managing web content and answering media inquiries. Strong candidates will be fast learners with the ability to grasp a variety of complex issues and translate them in easy to understand language. Maryland ties a strong plus. The position is based in Baltimore, works closely with field staff across the state, and reports to the Communications Director.
