Seattle Summer PR Internship

Looking for an exciting PR internship this summer? Walker Sands Communications is looking for an energetic, detail-oriented person to serve as our summer public relations intern at our new Seattle office.

WE ARE NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS!

Throughout 12 weeks as a PR intern, you’ll be responsible for developing media lists, conceptualizing pitches, writing press releases and preparing contributed articles. As part of a growing office, you’ll be a contributing member of the team from day one. This means you’ll get the chance to play your part in helping to grow our West Coast presence, reputation and maybe even a tradition or two.

To succeed in this role, you should have superb writing skills and the ability to conduct web research. You must also possess a sound grasp on grammar and the editing experience to make mediocre writing stronger. If typos jump off the page at you, it’s a good sign. It’s important to have a genuine interest in the media, trends and what makes a good story. If you are a news addict or a journalist wannabe, you'll do well here.

As part of one of Seattle’s best PR internships, you’ll work on a small team managing a number of clients that specialize in B2B sales and a variety technology sectors. This will require you to think on your feet and change gears quickly. At the end of this internship, you’ll have had in-depth exposure to what it's really like to work as a PR professional.

Experience Required

  • Recently completed undergraduate or master’s coursework in journalism, public relations, marketing communications or business.
  • Strong writing and editing abilities.
  • Keen attention to detail and an ability to multi-task.
  • Previous PR, marketing or journalism work experience a plus.
