This post is part of our Employer of the Week series, where we will be highlighting a different company in PR/Communications every Monday.
Mullen is a full-service advertising agency that integrates
- Public Relations
- Full Service Media
- Social Influence
- Digital Production
A Boston-based agency, Mullen has been selected as the new agency-of-record by U.S. Cellular and is listed as number 3 on the Ad Age Agency A-List. With offices in cities such as New York, Winston Salem, Detroit and Pittsburgh, Mullen’s cliental includes: Zappos, Jetblue, Living Social, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, HSBC, and more.
What Makes Mullen Stand Out:
More importantly Mullen places emphasis on the agency’s culture and brand. The agency believes in taking risks and being courageous, constantly going above and beyond. Evident in the recently remodeled website (http://www.mullen.com/2009/06/mullen-launches-new-website/) which is changing daily and constantly sharing news.
Mullen also recognizes the importance of connecting creativity and media. They believe in unbound marketing, the “new integrated” marketing, which emphasizes strategy, content, technology, and working together.
Mullen is also creative when it comes to PR. Mullen emphasizes integrated PR by combining brand building, big ideas, social influence and integration with classic brand reputation management. PR work at Mullen ranges from food marketing all the way to brand planning and analytics.
When hiring Mullen is seeking employees who will be persistent on a project, audacious, and continue in the culture of unbound thinking.
Mullen also has a summer internship opportunity for 24 students in the city of Boston. Every intern within the program receives a young mentor (recently graduated or a few years out of school) to aid career development through out the summer and even after. At the end of the program interns compete in a mock new business pitch competition, in which the interns themselves create miniature agencies to compete with each other.
