Health & Wellness 2016 Public Relations Intern

Posted on December 14th, 2015

Communications Strategy Group (CSG®), one of the country’s fastest growing national public relations firms, is seeking an intern for the agency’s Health & Wellness practice. Successful applicants will work with a variety of nationally recognized clients in multiple health and wellness sectors.

CSG is widely recognized for its communications expertise in the industries it serves including education, financial & professional services, health & wellness and consumer. The agency is based in Denver, Colorado, and has offices in Washington, D.C., and New York; this internship will be based in the Denver office.

Functionally, our intern will have the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of the communications industry, gain real-world experience working in an agency and build a portfolio of work as he/she develops a variety of different types of content, including press releases, ad copy, blog posts, articles, website content and other materials. Knowledge of AP style and understanding of SEO is preferred, but not necessary. The experience should be challenging, rewarding and fun.

The perfect applicant will have the ability to execute a variety of tasks, owning all projects from start to finish. An interest in health and wellness is helpful and writing skills are critical. We also prefer our candidates be personable, organized and self-motivated. We desire a listener who is intuitive, confident and willing to jump into assignments with enthusiasm and dedication. Because this practice works in a variety of health-focused areas, the ability to tactfully handle sensitive client subject matter is vital.

We seek students in their junior or senior year pursuing a bachelor’s degree in communications, public relations, marketing or other applicable studies. Ideally, we would like candidates to commit 10-20 hours per week to the internship, though time commitment is flexible based on school schedule. While we are looking for someone to start as soon as possible, the internship schedule is negotiable based on your stage of education.

Location: Denver office
Stipend: $12.50/hour with a 16-hour max each week

Submit your resume, a cover letter detailing your experience and why you would make the perfect addition to the Health & Wellness practice, and three writing samples to Mark Stern at mstern@csg-pr.com.
