About PulsePoint Group:
PulsePoint Group is an established management and digital consulting firm with an entrepreneurial spirit that rewards intellect and creativity. Focused primarily on marketing and communications clients, our firm specializes in organizational design, digital strategy, change management, issues and crisis communication, and branding. We work primarily with chief communications or chief marketing officers at some of the world’s largest, most respected companies.
We are a rapidly growing, fast-paced workplace with opportunities to learn, travel and engage with senior and influential business leaders. Our culture is meritocratic, intellectually curious and compassionate with a dose of healthy competition. We are seeking Associates who are ready and willing to be dedicated members of our close-knit team, and excel as trusted advisors to our clients.
Welcome to your new job. Here are just a few of the things you may be asked to do in the first month at work:
- Help to design a brand new way to measure reputational risk for an enterprise using social data
- Participate in a meeting with the Chief Communications Officer of a Fortune 500 company to advise on a new digital transformation plan or a new organization design for better team performance
- Build content and collateral images for an enterprise social media training program that will reach 100s of tenured professionals
- Fly to Japan to be in a meeting with a team of executives about a company’s crisis communications strategy
All of these situations are true stories. Are you ready? Hopefully you are excited.
At PulsePoint Group, we ask a lot of and give a lot to our Associates. As an Associate Consultant, you’ll work with more senior members of our team to build deliverables and manage the project. But you’ll also regularly, directly interact with C-suite clients at Fortune 500 companies during meetings and research gathering. To succeed in your day-to-day work you’ll need to leverage various skill sets including research design, process design, social media-based analytics, deck creation and project management. Our Associates work across clients and deadlines, so time management and attention to detail are critical to success. You will be expected to own deliverables and travel to/participate in client meetings—with oversight, of course. But also with a lot of trust placed in your own ability and creativity.
No two days are likely to be the same, but you can be assured that you’ll be challenged, inspired and engaged with interesting work for respected companies.
