Imagine more for your career.

Richard Branson once said, “Business has to be involving. It has to be fun. And it has to exercise your creative instincts.” While we can’t take credit for the quote, we can tell you it paints a pretty good picture of our approach to our work, our culture, and our people. If you are eternally curious and able to look at whatever life or clients throw at you as an opportunity to challenge yourself and be inspired to create something great, then we’ve got a spot for you. At Cohn & Wolfe, we embrace your thinking, feed your ambition, unleash your potential, and even accept all your weird quirks that drive your friends crazy.

Can you lead a project day-to-day and integrate with PR teams to deliver success to clients? Are you a natural relationship builder with a great attitude and a passion for collaboration and learning from your co-workers and clients? Are you up to taking on a complex client with a challenging story to tell? Does the idea of building a team excite you?
