A public relations position is all about branding, which can be stated simply as how consumers view a company. Most people are aware of company branding when the company is selling something through advertisements like commercials and billboards, but social media allows for a more personal branding interaction between a company and consumers. For example, I am a PR intern and my job is to build a relationship between you and Internships.com. Through projects like these blog posts, tweets, and our Facebook page, my job is to prove to you that we are a great resource for your internship questions and needs. While PR interns will have broader projects like managing events and coordinating media outreach, the primary job will most likely be handling the social media branding of the company, which provides a great amount of liberty in the work being done.

PR interns will need a working knowledge of common social media platforms, as well as a willingness and ability to build experience with new platforms and management tools. Due to the necessity for strong communications skills and a firm foundation of technical knowledge, a PR internship is perfect for anyone who balances between interests in English and computer science. Anything you can bring to the table from those two categories–HTML coding, proper grammar, or novel writing choices–can benefit your role as a PR intern.
