Account executive needed for PadillaCRT’s thriving agribusiness practice!



If you have a passion for public relations -- and an interest in the agricultural industry – we’d love to hear from you! Padilla Speer Beardsley, an integrated communications firm in Minneapolis, is ready to add an exceptional account executive to our agriculture and environmental science practice.

PadillaCRT is looking for hit-the-ground-running, results-oriented account managers with three to six years of public relations experience, plus excellent writing, editing and interviewing skills. Experience or interest in the agribusiness industry is helpful. This position require a bachelor’s degree with a major in marketing or PR/journalism.

Marketing communications, account management and client-relations skills are critical. Also needed are organizational and project-management skills, including the ability to handle and successfully complete multiple projects. The ideal candidate will have digital (Web, social media, etc.), and media relations experience with both general and trade publications. The ability to manage a clipping/reporting process is a plus.

We are looking for candidates who are passionate about developing integrated campaigns and discussing agricultural trends and newsmakers. Candidates need to understand, synthesize and explain complex subject matter.

The right candidate is a strong team player who enjoys the challenge of balancing deadlines and priorities in a high-energy environment and can offer strategic counsel to achieve client goals, not just take orders.
