DescriptionAt BrightBox it is our goal to enrich the lives of our clients through creative and properly implemented marketing solutions. As a member of the BrightBox Internship Team, you will learn to create strategic PR campaigns, write press releases, distribute releases via our database of over 350,000 journalists, blog, manage online social media campaigns, develop media relationships, and much more.
Unlike most internships, you won’t be doing those tasks that no one else wants to do. You will be assisting and learning from our staff of industry experts, who will take an active and interested roll in teaching and empowering you to succeed.
You will experience real-life, on-the-job activities, sit in on business meetings, familiarize yourself with the day-to-day routine of a PR and marketing agency, and build relationships with established professionals.
Our goal is to play an active role in guiding and nurturing your blossoming career. We want to help you identify your strengths, and work with you to build upon your skills, aspirations, and potential. We are here to give you that on-the-job experience and industry acclimation which a classroom education cannot provide.
