2017 Internships

Who we are looking for:

Well, for starters, we need someone who is self-motivated and hits the ground running day one. You’ll be working with our team on everything from media relations to social media management to crisis communications and more.

Responsibilities:

While every day in the public relations field is different, our interns are generally expected to help with the following:

  • Writing press releases
  • Managing website and social media content for the firm and clients
  • Tracking media coverage of clients and events
  • Making follow-up calls to the media
  • Assisting with event planning and client strategy
  • Attending meetings with clients

In addition, we want you to experience as much of the public relations field as possible. That means you’ll be shadowing and assisting us with press conferences, client strategy meetings, and other events. Flexibility and a willingness to learn is key!

At the end of your time with us, you’ll walk away with:

  • A strong understanding of the different elements of public relations
  • A strong understanding of public relations writing, including AP style and writing for different purposes (press releases, op-eds, and digital content)
  • Experience using public relations software, including content management software and media monitoring software
  • Experience putting together and executing an event plan

Qualifications:

A strong desire to learn about everything the industry has to offer is a must. Time and project management skills are also essential. And we’d like you to have a little knowledge under your belt before you get here, so you need to have completed your sophomore year of college.

This is a 30 hour per week internship, so we’re also looking for someone who can commit to working in our office three to four days per week for several hours each day. This internship lasts for approximately three months, from end of May through mid-August.

What will we need from you?

  • Cover letter
  • Resume
  • You may be asked to submit a writing sample after we receive your resume and cover letter.

Send all information to info@completepr.net by December 1, 2017. Phone and in-person interviews will be conducted after this date. Thank you for your interest!
