Public Relations Intern (Summer), Washington, D.C.

Position Overview and Responsibilities

FleishmanHillard offers college juniors, seniors, recent college graduates and graduate school students the opportunity to learn from leading public relations experts through a comprehensive internship program. The substantive work experience and solid professional training that interns gain through this program creates a strong foundation for their budding careers. 

Each intern is assigned a point person and works primarily within one of FleishmanHillard’s practice groups ranging from healthcare to brand marketing to public affairs and public sector. Interns are expected to work with professionals in their practice groups and around the office, in order to gain an understanding of our clients’ various industries. Interns experience multiple facets of the communications industry and engage with account staff on a variety of projects, including research, writing, event coordination and staffing, media relations and creative brainstorming.

Qualifications

Interns must be a college junior or above with a minimum B grade point average. Applicants should have excellent communications and critical thinking skills and be able to multitask and thrive in a fast-paced environment. While a strong interest in public relations is a must, our internship is not exclusive to public relations or communications majors.

FleishmanHillard hires interns for spring, summer and fall semesters that mirror a standard academic calendar. Full-time paid internships (37.5 hours per week) are available, but no part-time. Interns are compensated on the same schedule as all other FleishmanHillard employees and receive overtime pay when applicable.
