  • Overview

    maslansky + partners is a communication strategy firm grounded in a rigorous approach to messaging research. We work with Fortune 500 companies, trade associations, non-profits, and public policy groups to help them address their most important communication and messaging challenges. We’re seeking a Language Strategy with strong analytical thinking, persuasive writing, and project management skills to join our team.

     

    Every member of our team is:

    • A researcher – we conduct qualitative and quantitative research to understand how audiences respond to different ways of talking about something and why
    • A writer – we help clients engage and persuade their audiences by writing in a way that resonates and compels them to act
    • A strategist – anyone can find out what an audience thinks; we bring an analytic and strategic approach to messaging.
    • A consultant – we constantly imagine the world through the eyes of someone else: our clients’, what are their challenges externally and internally and how can we help them? Our clients’ audiences: how do we factor “their truth” into effective messaging?
    • Able to express a point of view.  We don’t really care what it is, as long as you have one, and can communicate it persuasively.  
    • A compelling speaker.  When we walk into a room, we want people to remember we were there.  We lead with substance, but you also need a demonstrable ability to present well.

    Our firm is guided by the simple idea that it’s not what you SAY that matters, it’s what they HEAR. We use research to advise our clients what to say, what not to say, and why it matters.  We passionately believe that for PR, marketing and advocacy efforts to be successful, they must have the right words, phrases and framing. Though small, we have a large impact. We work on major communication challenges for Fortune 500 companies, trade associations, non-profits, and public policy groups around the country and the world.

    Responsibilities

    • Our clients come to us to communicate more effectively on challenging communication issues, including corporate reputation and branding; public affairs and issue advocacy; new product launches and We work with them to develop a comprehensive understanding of potential approaches to communication.
    • Use market research to create meaningful, actionable and interesting communication advice for clients.
    • Handle all of the logistics for qualitative and quantitative research projects.  

    Qualifications

    • 1-3 years’ experience in corporate strategy, communication, public affairs, market research, advertising, marketing, or another field that you can convince us is relevant
    • An ability to juggle and prioritize simultaneous projects and responsibilities… while on the road
    • Strong analytic skills so that you can understand and synthesize perspectives that may be very different from your own
    • Strong writing and presentation skills (bonus points for cover letters that demonstrate these skills)
