Public Relations Intern
Company: Treat Public Relations
Contact Person: Meg Treat
Application Deadline: September 1, 2017
Treat Public Relations, a public relations firm based in Tallahassee, Fla. and serving clients across the nation, is seeking internship applicants for the upcoming fall semester.
Interns will be given a chance to look beyond the communications theories they are learning in the classroom, and be exposed to agency life. Through both engaging seminars in public relations topics and hands-on client work, interns will depart more knowledgable and more prepared for their career in communications.
The internship can customized as an 8 or 16 week program, covering the following topics:
– the inner-workings of public relations firms and agencies
– social media strategies and management
– media document writing and distribution strategies
– training in and exposure to common public relations software and literature
– methods for recording and measuring media coverage
– case study development
– media training
– expert positioning
– crisis communications
– professional development, career planning, and portfolio design
Interns will be given the chance to work on real client deliverables and assignments corresponding with the topics they have been learning about and researching during that week. They may also have the chance to attend client meetings, professional organization luncheons, networking events and workshops.
Interns can expect to dedicate 2-4 hours to the position each week. This internship does not require travel and is unpaid, but could be completed for college credit. Internships can be carried out in person in the Tallahassee, Fla. area, or virtually from anywhere in the U.S.
Those applying should be working towards their undergraduate degree or have just graduated. They should have completed some coursework in communications during their undergraduate studies so far, or hold a bachelors degree in communications, public relations, journalism or another related field.
Treat PR serves the endurance sports industry specifically. While being an endurance athlete is not required, we hope applicants will make note of their a love for running, cycling, triathlon or fitness in their email.
