Business Communications Intern
New York, NY
We’re looking for smart, motivated interns to join our team, for our immersive apprenticeship program. Our NYC PR Internships are available all year round and they last three months.
Interns learn firsthand about the business realities of growing companies and funded startups, as our team works directly with CEOs, founders and other senior team members to develop and execute communications programs that deliver on their business goals.
You’ll gain an insider’s view of the essential role that PR and marketing play in growing a business. As you delve into the inner workings of our clients’ companies, you’ll learn how sales and marketing work together and the essential role that effective, strategic communications campaigns play in achieving business goals. You’ll see how communications can create a new market for a given business or product–or help a business break into a crowded market. You’ll gain an understanding of the different buyer types and their needs and pain points, along with the art of developing messaging that speaks to these audiences. You’ll get a nuanced view of the complex landscape of media, and see how earned coverage plays an essential role in establishing and advancing business value and credibility. You’ll learn the essential skill of making technical business specifications relevant to a non-expert audience to create awareness and demand.
You’ll do it all from our boutique communications agency located in the Meatpacking district. Our roots are in PR, but our agency is built on providing our clients (technology/start-ups, brands, products and b2b companies) all the services they often need as part of a unified communications strategy and approach, including web design, content development, and other aspects of effective inbound-outbound marketing strategies. We create with customized solutions that help clients solve problems and meet business goals. We work really hard and wear a lot of hats.
