On our site alone, there are over 5,000 public relations internships. You may ask yourself, why should I go into the field of PR? The quick answer: It’s a fast paced and exciting industry that can always use new eyes. There will always be a need for PR because one thing about companies and individuals will never change: they want the public, investors and employees to want to support them. Whether it is the public purchasing products or investors deciding to support a company, all of the positive attention a corporation can garner will help a company reach their ultimate goals.
The other nice thing about a job in the PR field: almost everyone can find an aspect of it that they enjoy. Do you like the entertainment industry? You can help portray an actor or actress in a favorable way. If you enjoy politics you could speak at conferences and work with the media to support a campaign. Are you a technology lover? You could be working on articles and press releases for new products, such as computers and phones. The list is never ending, and the PR field could attract almost anyone, so start your internship search now!
