Loyola University / Communication Internships

Public Relations: Warschawski

An intern at Warschawski is considered an Assistant Associate (AA), as they play an integral role on client accounts and within the Warschawski team. Applicants must have strong writing, communications and interpersonal skills. Confidence, an inquisitive nature and an entrepreneurial spirit are pluses. Applicants should also have a strong desire to enter the public relations/marketing field and a continued willingness to learn throughout their AA tenure. Proficiency in typing, basic Internet and computer skills (i.e. working knowledge of Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel) are required.

Each AA candidate will be given the opportunity to be involved in almost all elements of public relations, marketing and branding strategy and implementation. He/she will be given the chance to gain first-hand experience in such activities as writing press releases, contacting reporters, pitching stories, research, and business strategy development. Responsibilities also include administrative duties and assisting team members with client work. As Warschawski offers a truly unique immersion experience, AA's are required to commit to the entire - three-month term - of their AA program.

Hours: The AA program is full-time and requires the AA to work 40 hours per week. This is an unpaid program, however we do offer the opportunity for college credit.

What will the intern gain from the experience?: The AA program will offer a student first-hand experiences and the opportunity to assemble a comprehensive public relations, marketing, and branding portfolio, which will give him/her a competitive advantage when applying for a job in the public relations/marketing field. Based on the AA's performance, Warschawski may offer continued employment opportunities upon the completion of the program.
