Communications

In a field as diverse and ever-changing as communications, there’s nothing more important than gaining hands-on experience. From journalism and content writing to public relations and everything in between, a communications internship ensures a competitive edge in your chosen field, and a chance to develop a broad understanding of the industry.

Our alumni have interned at organizations including:

Communications internships ensure ambitious applicants enter the dynamic industry equipped with the skills and connections needed to succeed. The communications industry is growing extremely quickly, and transforming every corner of the globe, bringing everyone closer together. In this unique global environment, prior experience and an understanding of the industry are key.

Interns develop essential skills ranging from writing for SEO and building publication calendars, to social media management, conducting interviews, and everything in between. The opportunities for professional growth are truly endless.

These immersive placements are designed to provide interns with a communications portfolio at the conclusion of their program. From blogs and press releases to well-executed projects, interns won’t be short of concrete examples of their skills and experience to show future employers.

Responsibilities at communications internships may include:
Drafting press releases and other announcements
Writing opinion-editorials and publishing blogs
Preparing pitches for various outlets and clients
Conducting preliminary research and interviews

What are the benefits of a remote communications internship?

As many of the world’s top communications companies move towards a virtual structure, the industry becomes increasingly flexible and global. Remote communications internships offer a chance to launch a location-independent career in one of the most internationalized fields. Our virtual placements embed top applicants with communications firms in every corner of the globe, and equip them with the experience necessary to succeed in the remote workforce.

Virtual placements are just as immersive and intensive as in-person roles and can be completed from anywhere in the world on a personalized schedule. Remote interns frequently enjoy more autonomy and control over their projects, resulting in extremely impressive portfolios and a strong sense of self-confidence. Each intern works closely with their assigned manager and team, taking part in both independent and group projects, and learning from experts in all areas of the industry.

Of course, one of the top benefits of a remote communications internship is the international community interns develop. Our virtual programs are designed to provide interns with the opportunity to meet and build relationships with other interns and professionals from all around the world. Our keynote speaker series offers the chance to learn from today’s top entrepreneurs, authors, and politicians, and gain professional advice in real-time. Career advancement training sessions and virtual happy hours offer further chances to mingle with fellow interns, and career coaching sessions offer time for one-on-one advice.

“I had a really good experience with my internship and I was lucky enough for that to turn into a full time role quite quickly. Straight away they got me to write stories, go to events and get stuck in from day one which I was quite surprised and really stoked about, of course.“
