Remote internships in communications
Here are just a few example roles our communications interns have taken on before:
Public relations interns are keyed in on controlling their organization’s external message and reputation. Interns gain experience writing press releases and public statements, as well as pitching stories about their company or industry to journalists.
If you have excellent writing skills and are interested in marketing or branding, copywriting may be the field for you. Copywriting interns gain experience writing for a variety of corporate purposes, including advertising, blogging, social media posts, and website content.
The advertising field is extremely broad, but highly important in the world of corporate communications. Interns may gain experience in sales and branding, managing social media ads, or even creating multi-media promotional materials, depending on their skillset.
Social media is one of the fastest-growing areas in the world of communications. Interns in social media placements are dropped in the hot-seat of advertising, brand awareness, and reputational management. Today, most companies use social media for many elements of their business, so developing these key skills early on is the best way to stand out.
The communications industry is home to many of the world’s most creative, organized, talented, and motivated professionals. One of the best things about internships in communications is that they open the door to an enormous range of possibilities. Regardless of your specific internship, getting a foot in the door of the communications field as a whole is essential. In fact, many top public relations specialists started out as journalists – many social media experts started out as bloggers. And vice versa! The field is varied, but the foundational skills you develop as an intern will take you far in whatever direction you choose.
