Public Relations Intern

Public Relations Internship

We are looking for enthusiastic and committed students who are interested in learning more about the literary public relations field from a team of seasoned professionals. PR by the Book, LLC interns designate their weekly office hours and commit to a minimum of 15 hours per week for 6-months. You’ll have the opportunity to be mentored in-person, too.

The internship is unpaid; however, a performance-based stipend is available to those interns that have an exceptional level of performance. The maximum stipend available is $750 over the term of the internship, but is not guaranteed. Intern performance evaluations will be conducted at the half-way point and at the end of the internship. If earned, a portion of the stipend will be paid at the half-way point and another portion at the end of the internship.

Interns will be mentored and supervised and assist the campaign managers in developing, executing, and monitoring client media relations campaigns and social media platforms.
