About Hill & Knowlton

Hill & Knowlton was founded by John Hill in 1927, making it one of the oldest public relations consultancies in the world. In 1987, it became a part of the WPP Group, a set of marketing, advertising, communications and public relations companies that includes Burson- Marsteller, Cohn & Wolfe and Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide. Today, H&K is a global public relations firm with 81 offices in 43 countries. The firm’s long list of clients includes Adidas, Yahoo!, Deloitte, Mazda, Merck and the Nuclear Energy Institute.

Hill & Knowlton is divided into “core services” that include marketing communications, public affairs, technology, health care and digital communications. Interns are placed in the service or practice that offers the best fit with their experience and interests. They participate in a structured orientation program that offers training in project management, news writing, media relations and news monitoring as well as basic writing, account management, time management, presenting and budget management. All interns are given a project that includes a formal presentation, which must be completed by the end of the internship.


Open to rising college juniors and seniors, recent college graduates and grad students. A background in journalism, communications or other PR-related field is preferred.
