PR Internship - San Diego
Ever worked for one of those companies where you check your watch every five minutes, willing it to say “time to go home”? Where happy hour is always hours away? Where making instant coffee is often the highlight of the day?
Yeah, we’re not one of those companies. Intern with us, and the average day might find you learning from a team of PR mavens that are pitching the world’s best reporters on a super stealth start-up, building a Facebook page, dreaming up a new brand tagline, and handling a breaking crisis. All before lunch.
As an intern in LEWIS PR's San Diego office, you'll be given a hands-on role in the operations of a leading PR firm. This experience will be crucial if you are considering a career in PR or marketing communications. Your role will be to provide administrative support to the PR executives in their daily duties with tasks including collaborating on research projects, report generation and maintenance as well as general office tasks. In short you'll be run off your feet, so only apply if you like being busy. Lots of energy and a great attitude are a must. Fluency in English is essential. You should be interested in the media and technology. You must be available for a minimum of three months and be able to receive college credits for your internship.
