The Public Relations and Marketing Group’s Internship Program is a great opportunity for students to gain real world experience in the workforce. Interns are required to earn academic credit or participate in the program in conjunction with an academic program or counselor.
We strive to treat our interns as if they were an employee, by having them work on real assignments and having them interact with real clients, vendors and staff. We provide training and the tools they need to build their skillset and gain the experience they need to make the transition from student to professional.
All initial internships are unpaid. However, interns are often considered for returning paid internships and job opportunities when available.
