Public Relations Internship

Posted on April 8th, 2013

Communications Strategy Group (CSG) is currently seeking a public relations intern for our Health & Wellness practice for summer 2013. CSG is an eight-year-old firm with an impressive client list; learn more about us at www.csg-pr.com/health-wellness. 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; assisting with social media campaigns; brainstorming story ideas and assisting with miscellaneous office tasks. 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 recent college graduates or students entering 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 summer months; and although the specific time frame is flexible, mid-May through mid-August. The number of hours each week is flexible, however we would like an intern to be able to commit anywhere from 16 to 20 hours per week.

Please send a resume and 2-3 writing samples to Molly Koch at mkoch@csg-pr.com no later than Friday, April 26, 2013.
