QUICK QUIZ - SEE IF A JAFFE  CAREER IS RIGHT FOR YOU:

  1. Are you the type of person who wants to be challenged and engaged in meaningful work, but no longer desires the mandatory grueling hours, dress code requirements, and political/social drama of a traditional office environment?
  2. Does the ability to work out of your home office or any other place in the world, along with some flexibility to set your own schedule, seem like a rare work-life balance opportunity you’d seize in a nanosecond?
  3. Could you easily reallocate the time and money you currently spend on daily commuting towards more productive purposes?
  4. Are you happy to leave the typical “star-system, knife in your back” corporate environment to join a truly teamwork-oriented group of professionals who are all focused on a shared vision and common set of goals?
  5. Do you possess senior-level marketing and/or media relations experience in any of the following settings: (1) an independent consulting capacity, (2) an advertising or public relations agency account management position, OR (3) the professional services sector (law, finance/accounting, architecture, engineering, etc.)?
  6. Are you a highly motivated self-starter who is capable of developing new business and working independently from a home office yet within a highly structured and organized team (we call this unique combination “intrapreneurial”)?
  7. Are you aware of and comfortable using leading edge technologies and able to recommend effective Web 2.0 tools for inclusion in clients’ marketing and/or media relations plans?


If you answered “YES” to ALL of these questions, and if you feel that your credentials, personal work habits, and lifestyle requirements are a match for our business, please send us an email to info@jaffepr.com to determine if a position is available.
