4.2 of 5 stars

Learned so much about the industry and gained so much great work experience
Washington, DC | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The other interns and the attention and respect given to you by your superiors. I also really enjoyed the wide variety of assignments given to interns and the amount of trust interns could earn by completing high quality work.


Downers

They pay could have been more competitive.


Advice to Potential Interns

APCO is a great company to work for and interning there is an awesome experience even if you are not a PR major. Everyone is very intelligent and will teach you the ropes. Don't be afraid to ask questions about the job and demonstrate your interest in the position.


Advice to Management

I would maybe have more intern bonding activities and APCO sponsored ways for us to get to know eachother.

Washington, DC | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Working on real client work that was valued and utilized


Downers

Nothing stood out


Advice to Potential Interns

Strong communication, writing and ability to work on a deadline is essential.


Advice to Management

For a duration of the program, there were two high school students participating in the internship. They were paid $10 an hour. However, college and graduate students were being paid $11 per hour. I think the difference should be considered.

3.7 of 5 stars

Learning by doing: Everyday APCO
Washington, DC | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Fast paced environment, independence, availability and variety of assignments, valuable insight into the PR industry


Downers

The work environment is so large and hectic that the experience doesn't feel as "personal" as I might have liked.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be able to think on your feet and always stay tuned into current events/the topics you follow in the media for clients, maintain organization and strong attention to detail in your work


Advice to Management

Provide more meaningful interactions/shadowing opportunities with senior-level management, be open to collaboration/insight from interns on some assignments, avoid pressuring interns into working overtime without compensation (make overtime pay policy more accessible for use)
