The Office of Congresswoman Sylvia Garcia (TX-29) seeks a bilingual (Spanish/English) Press Secretary for her Washington, D.C. office. Primary responsibilities include, but are not limited to building and maintaining relationships with Houston and DC press; responding to media inquiries; writing press releases and talking points; preparing stories and op-eds for Houston and national media; organizing earned media events in Houston and Washington, D.C.; managing social media platforms for the Congresswoman; and coordinating and staffing the Congresswoman for interviews and press events, among other things.
This is not an entry-level position. Qualified candidates must have strong writing skills, prior press and digital experience, the ability to work in a collaborative environment, be a self-started, and a good sense of humor goes a long way.
This office is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, age, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability. Congresswoman Garcia’s office is currently working remotely, but this job will require in-person work when the House has votes.
