Past Intern Praise

“I interned with PRBTB for a year and it’s been a great ride! I’ve gained so much hands on experience and would recommend this internship to anyone with an interest in PR, marketing, even publishing. The team is small, but everyone is very talented and treated me like I was a part of the family. I will miss PRBTB very much!​” – Emily Munroe

“I am a public relations major and was introduced to (the company) by one of my PR professors. I have been able to gain much-needed experience that will help in my future endeavors. To me, there is always a difference in learning about something and doing it. Interning has given me a great chance to use the skills and knowledge I have learned in class in practical ways. It has given me great opportunities to learn and do projects on my own, however, I had a great safety net if I ever have questions or concerns. The hours were also very flexible, which was helpful with a crazy class schedule. Overall, this internship was great in helping me build up my skills that I can use in the future.” – Nina ​Phrommala

“My time at PRBTB was unique in many aspects. Like the changing media, each day was unpredictable. I wore many hats and approached projects from multiple angles, further expanding my knowledge of the field. PRBTB is where you decide if you would like to sink or swim in literary ​PR.” ​ – Sabrina ​Reagan

“Interning for Marika opened up doors for me. She loves connecting people—she may very well introduce you to your first full-time employer!” ​- ​Samantha Strom
