ghost communications – Paid Summer Internship

We have an immediate opening for a smart, experienced intern at ghost.

Work with, and learn from a fast-moving, senior-team of PR professionals that led major brand campaigns and teams at some of the area’s biggest firms. Work on major consumer, women’s accessories and lifestyle brands as well as with prominent local businesses and events.

If you’re the right person for us, you will get your hands on a ton of experience very quickly – faster than larger firms with traditional internship tracks.

You should be a good writer, have experience with phone-pitching media and not be afraid to contribute ideas to campaigns that place our clients’ brands and products in major national consumer media. We may expect you to make a cup of tea and run an errand or two – but everybody does that here.

Requirements
Previous AGENCY internship experience essential
Knowledge of Vocus or Cision media database technology
Passion for real media as much as social media
Strong writing, verbal communications skills
Outgoing personality and a sense of humor
Open schedule and flexibility

Internship Terms
Compensation: paid (monthly fee commensurate with experience)
Full time hours with some flexibility
Term: three months renewable to six months/potential for future full time position

About ghost communications
We’re a small, busy micro agency (five people) based in Uptown Minneapolis and growing quickly. Our clients include prominent local businesses and a growing portfolio of consumer products in the snow, cycle, women’s accessories and outdoor lifestyle categories. You won’t find much on our website right now – it’s STILL under re-development, so if you have a question, ask. Better still, come and talk. You’ll find us in an open plan, industrial space right in the heart of Lynnlake close to restaurants and bars for after work happy hours.

Send your resume to steve@ghost-pr.com with a short email summary plus a cover letter detailing your current position, experience and availability. We are interviewing immediately for a May 1 start date.
