Public relations firms are concerned with maintaining beneficial public images for high-profile individuals, large corporations, and governmental organizations. By undertaking one of Absolute Internship’s public relations internships, you’ll experience first-hand what it means to be at the cutting-edge of profile management.
While many people equate public relations with publicity – or more generally, garnering media attention – the field is actually far broader. In addition to media relations, PR agents coordinate activities such as events, meetings, educational programs, speaking engagements, and other forms of communication. The task of effectively communicating how a person or brand benefits the public takes many forms.
In embarking upon one of Absolute Internship’s public relations internships, you’ll support a creative planner, media planner, or account executive in a PR firm working with local or international entities. You will write press releases, represent clients at marketing or promotional events, and support client planning and analysis. You’ll also have the opportunity to attend conferences and work with the press, ultimately learning how to communicate the right message to the right audience.
With the explosion of online media over the recent years, PR is more important than ever before and companies are hiring appropriately. If you demonstrate the desire to learn about media relations and can interact professionally with clients, then Absolute Internship’s public relations internships are a superb fit for you and your professional goals.
