Praecere Public Relations, a boutique firm in Washington, DC, seeks a part-time intern starting January 2011, for at least four months. Reasons to apply:
• Money – you will get paid. And, as our portfolio is growing quickly, if we win new business you’ll be eligible for bonuses.
• You will do real PR work – not just stuffing envelopes, making copies, and giving people keys to the bathroom. Work will include strategic planning, making media lists, pitching reporters, writing content, and more. We will teach you the ropes from the ground up, so you’ll get valuable, real-world PR experience.
• If you do your job well, are disciplined, cool, and fun to work with – and the firm scores bigger contracts – you will be considered for a full-time gig once you’re free of academic or other obligations. That is a solid promise.
• Preference is given to candidates with background in travel and tourism (we mean professionally, not your lifestyle).
Praecere takes time, thought, and care in every step and decision we make, and your application should reflect that philosophy. Tell us about your studies, prior work, understanding of the PR industry, and anything else you think is relevant and interesting about you. It helps if your application shows ambition, captures that creative je ne sais quoi, and ignores PR jargon and buzzwords.
