Calling all aspiring PR gurus! We are always looking for dedicated and passionate interns to participate in our Internship Program at our offices in Chicago. The internship program is specifically designed to introduce students and recent graduates to the business of public relations and social media, specifically in the areas of fashion, beauty and lifestyle.
Candidates must be an undergraduate college student, graduate student, or a recent college graduate. This is an unpaid internship but interns may receive academic credit if an agreement is made between Skirt PR and the intern’s college or university. Interns are expected to work a minimum of two days a week (Monday-Thursday) from the hours of 9am – 5pm with a one-hour lunch break during the three month internship program. Interns are expected to work at occasional after-hours events. They will be compensated $15.00 to help out with these. Duties can range from checking-in guests, helping with duties on site, errands, etc. Each intern has one Account Executive or Assistant Account Executive that acts as his or her Supervisor. In addition, facing challenges, problem solving, and time management, this internship will give the intern a first-hand look at the duties within a career in PR or social media.
A Public Relations Intern will help with the following but not limited to writing pitches, sending media alerts, participating in event planning and execution, sending samples, and more. A Social Media Intern will be integrated in a growing part of our company by assisting with engagement and outreach on social media channels, as well as helping to brainstorm and craft unique campaigns. In addition to daily assigned tasks, our interns complete two term projects that will be reviewed and made into an electronic portfolio for the intern to leave with at the end of his or her session.
For consideration for our internship program, applicants must submit a resume, cover letter, and at least one writing sample. Please send your complete application to the Internship Coordinator, Chapin Konsler, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed.
