Internships in communications in the USA

Here are just a few example roles our communications interns have taken on before:

  1. Advertising

    Advertising is a diverse and fast-paced field. Advertising interns gain experience creating and launching ads for a variety of audiences and platforms. Interns develop skills in design, project management, and even data analysis, from determining the success of a particular ad.

  2. Social Media

    In today’s global economy, it’s nearly impossible to find a company or industry that doesn’t use social media in some capacity. Social media is incredibly powerful and allows organizations to reach partners, clients, and future customers in every corner of the world with the click of a button. Internships in communications in the USA often include a social media element. Interns may draft posts, plan content, or manage publishing calendars.

  3. Copywriting

    Professionals with excellent writing skills are highly desirable in the communications world. Copywriters are behind most of the written words you see online today. From the text in advertisements to content blocks on a website and everything in between, there’s a good chance it was created by a copywriter. Interns sharpen their writing skills while learning about branding, voice, advertising, and search engine optimization.

  4. Branding

    Branding interns get to experience a bit of several different aspects of an organization’s communications team. Their primary focus is developing and then sharing a specific perception of their organization, or of a product. From creating logos and taglines to writing blog content, interns are able to gain key skills for the communication field and beyond.

The communications industry

The communications industry is the perfect place for students and young professionals to develop skills they can take anywhere in the world. As a field, it’s constantly evolving,  and it touches nearly every industry in today’s world. The field is certainly a competitive one, and positions on the communications teams at global companies or news outlets are in high demand. However, in communications in particular, internships are the key to success because they allow students and professionals to develop a portfolio of their prior work, and show potential employers what they’re capable of.
