PR Collaborative - Policy PR Internship

PR Collaborative is looking for a dynamic intern to assist with PR, marketing, and outreach for a range of clients working on issues related to public affairs, policy, and advocacy issues. This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to gain hands-on experience in PR and/or anyone hoping to learn the ins and outs of publicizing an issue-driven campaign.

The diversity of our client portfolio provides unique exposure to a range of industries (recent clients have been in public health, food policy, tech, environmental issues, and education) and would be ideal for someone interested in the intersection of politics and communication. PR interns will get the opportunity to execute social media campaigns, pitch to journalists, write blog posts and issue briefs, organize and staff outreach events, conduct research, and more.

The ideal candidate is a fast learner, takes initiative, and has a sense of humor. Intellectual curiosity and a strong sense of professionalism are musts.

To apply for a policy internship, please send a resume and a cover letter to Avalon Swindell Jones at
