PR and event planning
I just finished a public relations and event planning internship at the Lawrence Memorial Hospital Endowment Association. It was one of the most hands-on experiences I’ve had in my college career.
I worked in a small office, so everything I did was important to the organization’s success. I wrote thank you letters to donors, created Facebook advertisements, made promotional materials, and helped execute a major breast cancer awareness event.
I found out about the internship on the J-School’s online internship and job database. The J-School Career Center posts internships and jobs there almost on a weekly basis.
Whether you’re earning class credit or getting paid, I encourage everyone to do an internship. The J-School Career Center is the place to start.
