Public Relations Intern, Health & Wellness Practice

Posted on November 14th, 2012

Communications Strategy Group (CSG) is currently seeking a public relations intern for our Health & Wellness practice for the Spring 2013 semester. CSG is a seven-year-old firm with an impressive client list; learn more about us at CSG’s internships provide a rich opportunity to learn about PR, media relations and overall communications strategy.

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.

Functionally, our intern will have a variety of opportunities: writing articles, blog posts and other copy, conducting research, pitching the media, tracking press hits and brainstorming story ideas. Knowledge of AP style, experience writing for the web and understanding of SEO is preferred, but not necessary. The experience should be challenging, rewarding and fun.

We seek students in their junior or senior year pursuing a bachelor’s degree in communications, public relations, marketing or other applicable studies. The internship timeline is part time through the spring semester; and although the specific number of hours each week is flexible, we would like an intern to be able to commit anywhere from 8 to 16 hours per week.

Please send a resume and 2-3 writing samples to Molly Koch at no later than Friday, December 7, 2012.

Location: Denver office

Stipend: Unpaid/school credit if possible
