Interns generally work on a variety of PR projects and activities, including media relations, research, updating media lists, compiling press kit materials and participating in internal account team and brainstorming meetings. Interns learn the PR business step by step as they are assigned their own projects to create and present to executives and staff. Interns are also encouraged to attend luncheons and professional development seminars sponsored by organizations such as the Public Relations Society of America or PR Newswire. The staff also organizes “field trips,” most recently to the New York Stock Exchange, Bloomberg Business News and NBC studios, providing a broader perspective into the PR world. About one third of interns are offered full-time positions upon graduation.
Open to all college juniors and seniors. Recent grads and non-U.S. citizens are also eligible. Must be available to work for a minimum of 20 hours a week for the fall/spring and 40 hours a week for the summer.
