Public Relations Intern

Are you a college student who wants to get a head start on a career after your degree?  Are you a skilled communicator? Do you enjoy maintaining relationships and a good public image?  If so, this could be your perfect opportunity.

With our Public Relations internship you will not only earn class while in school, but you will also gain the experience of being a respected intern with a voice in our successful and growing company -- a company that encourages your growth as a skilled candidate for future marketing and communications opportunities, as well as teaches you professionalism in the business world in general.

Our Internship Program is unique in that we encourage all of our interns to have a voice in the company and to learn and grow during your time with us through shadowing oppurtunities and taking part in cross-functional projects. You'll also get a chance to sit down with senior executives, learn about their background and dig a little deeper into how they got where they are today while they share advice on things that helped them along the way.

Take your learning outside of the classroom, and join our marketing team of people who are living your dream job, and get paid for it.  

You will also be joining and socializing with a great group of interns just like you!
