Clairemont Is Hiring!
Clairemont Communications takes a tactics-agnostic approach to devising PR and marketing strategies using both traditional — media relations and event planning, for example– and emerging tools such as social networking. The difference? Product sketches that turn into top sellers. Campaigns that move consumers from couches to action. Jump starting a start-up to make it a recognized brand. Upholding the reputation of a tried and true company so shareholders continue to hold a special place in their hearts for it year after year.
Clairemont leads on QUALITY — quality of service, quality of experience and quality of the deliverables. We have a relentless obsession to devise the most strategic plans and provide the highest quality execution, hands-on involvement and support available. We cherry pick clients who are motivated, passionate, focused and respectful. It is our promise to work as hard, if not harder, than our clients in achieving their business objectives through communications and improving the strength of their brands.
