Remote Internships in PR
Here are just a few example roles our public relations interns have taken on before:
Partnerships are often an effective method of gaining new followers on social media, and expanding the reach of fundraisers or awareness campaigns. Interns gain experience identifying and screening potential corporate partners, and brainstorming collaborations, such as giveaways and competitions.
Product placement is one of the most important elements of many remote internships in PR. Interns learn about best practices for making sure their organization’s name or product are found in popular forms of media, such as television shows and photoshoots. Interns work closely with PR and digital marketing teams, and may collaborate with influencers and media professionals.
In many industries, events are an extremely important and recurring part of a public relations strategy. Many of today’s top technology companies host and attend annual events including product launches and industry conferences. These major events are an effective way to create excitement around a brand or a product, and to promote an organization’s brand.
Arranging media appearances for an organization’s top executives is another way PR professionals get their organizations in the news. TV appearances surrounding current events, fundraising milestones, or product launches are an excellent way to spread a company’s message and brand. PR interns may draft content pitching their company’s experts to a variety of multimedia and news outlets, and prepping those experts for their appearances.
Public relations is a field that includes everything from partnerships with social media influencers to reputational damage management. PR professionals are in high demand around the world, and across a wide variety of industries. That makes it a perfect field in which to pursue your passion and to gain an international perspective on the business world.
