Public Relations Intern

Location

Chicago

Employment

30 Hours Per Week

We’re committed to our amazing client partners (partners being the key word) and community as well as our weird and wonderful employees. Everyday, we come to work excited to service a broad range of industries (from beer and travel to technology and more) with a diverse spectrum of services (think media relations, creative big ideas, paid and analytics). We’re proud to say we have a few badges of honor, including PRWeek’s Best Places to Work (four years running – since we were founded and the only agency in PRWeek history!) and Agency of the Year. Twice. NBD.

We’re looking for sharp, passionate, creative thinkers eager to shape the future of public relations and excited to work side-by-side with a team dedicated to delivering great work. Our motto is “do the right thing,” and it applies to all things: our work, partners and clients, teammates, babies, and dogs.

The internship is a paid opportunity ($12/hr) from 1/7/2019 to 5/19/19 with flexible start and end dates, as well as schedules you can set (30-35 hours per week). We offer interns dedicated trainings in PR and all our departments (strategy, social, creative, and everything in between) to learn the skills they need to succeed in a digitally-savvy industry, hands-on experience with clients and consistent feedback. We always look to our interns first when fulfilling full-time roles and did we mention free snacks?
