Fleishman-Hillard - Public Relations Internship Program

DESCRIPTION
Fleishman-Hillard is an international, full-service public relations firm with headquarters in St. Louis. For 10 years, the Fleishman-Hillard Minneapolis office has offered college students and recent graduates the opportunity to gain valuable, practical public relations experience through its internship program.

The Fleishman-Hillard Minneapolis internship program offers four sessions: spring, summer, fall and winter. While at Fleishman-Hillard, interns have the opportunity to work with staff members to develop and execute media campaigns; write news releases, research papers, media pitch letters and other correspondence; participate in new business opportunities; and coordinate events.

Although interns are assigned to work with specific groups and accounts, they are exposed to many facets of the firm. Practice areas in the Minneapolis office are:
Financial Communications • Consumer/Retail
Healthcare • Technology


REQUIREMENTS

Applicants need at least a B average and must have completed their junior year of undergraduate study, however, recent graduates are preferred. Applications are welcomed from students with their concentrations in all major areas, but backgrounds in journalism, mass media, communications, public relations, and radio and television broadcasting are given first consideration.

COMPENSATION

Interns are compensated on an hourly basis and are competitive within the industry and the Minneapolis market. Interns work from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and usually have opportunities for overtime. We not do provide paid parking or housing assistance.
