While at FleishmanHillard, interns have the opportunity to work with counselors to develop and execute traditional and digital media campaigns; write news releases, research papers, pitch letters and other correspondence; participate in new business opportunities; and coordinate events.
Applicants need at least a 3.2 GPA average and must have completed their junior year of undergraduate study, however, recent graduates are preferred. Applications are welcomed from students with concentrations in all major areas, but backgrounds in journalism, mass media, communications, public relations, and radio and television broadcasting are given first consideration. Experience in digital communications and/or media convergence is required.
If someone wishes to apply for the summer session, the following is what they will need to send to complete the applicant materials, which we would appreciate receiving by the March 1 deadline:
- Cover letter expressing interest in the internship program
- Writing samples (three if possible): Examples would be something written for a classroom assignment (press release, pitch letter, media kit), a campus newspaper or magazine article, or an essay, letter, or memo of some sort
- Letter of recommendation from a former teacher, employer, or personal reference (teacher or employer are preferred)
- Transcript (can be unofficial)
Students are encouraged to apply via the PR Internship position on our website http://fleishmanhillard.com/job/public-relations-intern-summer-st-louis/
Please note our intern positions are full-time, (8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday), paid positions.
