Interested in the beauty market? Here's an internship you don't want to miss:
Luxury Swiss beauty brand La Prairie (best known for cult favorite cobalt blue Skin Caviar and $1,000 platinum-infused anti-aging cream) is looking to hire a self-proclaimed beauty product lover and aspiring publicist for a Fall 2011 PR internship. The internship starts late August – December 2011(dates flexible).
Amazing experience and exposure to how a cosmetics company handles their communications internally and to the press – this is an ideal opportunity for communication students in college or recent grads . The intern will help with building and maintaining media lists, drafting press releases, handling product send-outs, pitching print and online media, vendor sourcing, assisting at company press events and handling admin duties. Aside from working with Communications, you’ll also have exposure to the work of the Spa division too, which handles our NYC, Beverly Hills and Grand Cayman and soon-to-be Bel-Air namesake spas.
A desire to learn all about PR, an ability to think on your feet quickly, a polished, professional look and resourcefulness are musts.
Our PR Intern will work directly for the Communications department, gaining priceless experience and exposure to the ins and outs of a luxury beauty brand.
The internship is unpaid, but you will be on the receiving end of some high-end creams and makeup and course credit, plus the hours are flexible (so long as you can swing at least 3 days / week).
