To that end, we strongly encourage applications from women, people of color, members of the LGBTQ community, veterans, and individuals with disabilities.


Our ideal candidates will have graduated and completed college coursework in journalism, public relations, communications or related fields. All of our graduate interns are expected to have:

  • Excellent communications and critical-thinking skills
  • Excellent research, writing and organization skills
  • Extensive social media experience across multiple platforms
  • An ability to work easily in both large team environments or independently
  • An ability to multitask and thrive in a fast-paced environment
  • A positive attitude and willingness to learn from our industry-leading team of counselors
