Widmeyer Communications is an independent, full-service public relations agency. For more than 20 years, it has delivered communications solutions to a diverse array of clients, including industry-leading businesses, local and national associations and nonprofits, as well as a host of public sector agencies.
Interns and fellows usually work at the firm’s headquarters, but opportunities are sometimes available in the New York office as well. Widmeyer fellows gain hands-on experience through a wide range of real-life projects in education, public affairs, marketing and research. Fellows work closely with public relations professionals addressing today’s “leading issues, causes and organizations.” Undergraduate interns write press releases, update media kits, conduct research and maintain clip reports. In addition, interns perform administrative tasks and are involved in event planning.
Fellowship: recent college graduates and grad students with experience in journalism, media relations, political science, marketing or communications. Internship: college sophomores, juniors and seniors majoring in communications, journalism, English, political science or marketing. All candidates must be able to work regular business hours (9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.) unless other arrangements are made.
