Green Brook, NJ
DescriptionEldridge Overton Educational Programs is a progressive educational services firm that offers academic support to students of all ages. Our innovative agency partners with families, school districts, nonprofit agencies, state agencies and private entities to offer enrichment courses, gifted and talented programs, leadership training, professional tutoring and much, much more. Interns work in our corporate office, which is located in Green Brook, NJ.
We are seeking dynamic Public Relations Interns to reach out to media outlets and secure positive press on behalf of the organization. PR Interns conduct field related research, create new contacts, and network with existing contacts in order to create leading-edge visual and written products. As respected members of the Administrative team, interns participate in weekly planning meetings and are expected to complete tasks and projects in their respective fields of study.
The ideal candidate thinks outside of the box, values education, can effectively communicate orally, visually, and in written form with parents, children, and educational leaders. Our unique and highly selective internship program welcomes motivated Interns wishing to engage in a meaningful work experience to apply. Serious Interns are encouraged to apply and submit required documentation for review.
Various internships (p/t vs. f/t and one semester vs. multiple semesters) are offered. As an integral member of the EOEP, we greatly value the necessity to fully orientate Interns to the Eldridge Overton organizational culture and system. Accordingly, full time and longer termed internships (multiple semesters) are favored. However, we do hire part time and one semester Interns. Since a tremendous experience is granted via this internship, Interns may either earn college credits (where applicable) OR a monetary stipend. A minimum of 15 hours per week is required. The stipend offered is per semester, but is payable monthly throughout the duration of the internship. Interns working less than full time are offered a prorated stipend based on the number of hours worked per week. All of our previous Interns have been offered entry to competitive graduate programs, positions at top firms and Fortune 500 companies in their respective fields.
