Internships in public relations in the USA
Here are just a few example roles our public relations interns have taken on before:
Event planning and logistics is a key component of many internships in PR in the USA. From the nonprofit world to the tech industry, annual events are an enormous part of fundraising, outreach, and branding. Interns gain experience in organizing and planning, as well as in event promotion.
Social media interns gain experience in everything from developing publication calendars to analyzing post reach. They may pitch and draft content for a variety of platforms including LinkedIn, Instagram, and TikTok, to name a few.
Partnerships with influencers and brands within an industry is an essential tool for reaching new audiences and increasing engagement. Interns assist with identifying and screening potential partnerships, analyzing potential audience reach, and organizing partnership logistics.
Writing skills are some of the most essential for an aspiring public relations specialist. Interns gain experience writing press releases, website content, social media posts, and everything in between. In addition to the excellent experience, these roles also ensure interns can begin to build a portfolio of their professional writing.
The public relations industry is worth billions of dollars and is home to thousands of firms in the United States alone. From corporate branding and crisis PR to celebrity management, the opportunities in the field are many and varied. The top professionals in the field call cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York City home. In the PR industry networking is absolutely essential. Professionals need to know others in the field, and more importantly, need connections in the media world and at key organizations. An internship in the United States is the perfect way to begin pursuing that dream.
