Public Relations Intern (Fall 2017), Houston
Position Overview and Responsibilities
FleishmanHillard Houston offers full-time, paid internships three times a year, giving participants dynamic, real-life experience and skills that will help them succeed in their communications careers in the future.
At FleishmanHillard Houston, interns work side-by-side with the account staff on a wide range of projects in a variety of different industries, including energy, healthcare, food/agriculture, technology and nonprofit. The projects are selected to ensure that the intern is able to experience and appreciate the different facets of public relations work. As part of a structured program, they will learn and undertake the basic responsibilities of a junior-level staffer, such as building media lists, media monitoring, performing research, writing media materials, and developing internal communication material. They will also have the opportunity to work on special projects, event coordination and media pitches. Interns are encouraged to follow through on as many stages of a project as is feasible so that they can feel a sense of ownership and achievement over their work. In keeping with the FleishmanHillard philosophy of enabling people to develop to their full potential, interns who show ability and aptitude are also encouraged, under guided supervision, to take on challenges that stretch and stimulate them.
Ideal candidates will have completed college coursework in journalism, public relations or communications. Applicants should highlight special skills and knowledge, such as languages, social media or industry-specific experience on their cover letter and resume as appropriate.
If interested in an internship, please submit a resume, cover letter and one to two writing samples.
Deadlines for submissions: June 15
