Description

  • Are you up for a meaningful challenge and an unforgettable internship at one of the best agencies in Chicago? At FleishmanHillard, the leading and award-winning communications firm, we are seeking talented and enthusiastic interns to launch their careers with our Consumer and Brand Marketing team!  
  • Here at FleishmanHillard, we never settle, and the industry experts have noticed. Agency of the Year, Best Place to Work, Outstanding Extra-large Agency - these are just a few names they’ve called us as we have racked up accolades from the Silver Anvils, PRWeek, and SABRE Awards to Cannes Lions and beyond. We are currently looking for energetic, motivated, collaborative, “I’m-ready-to-start-my-career” candidates that can work FULL TIME to join us this Summer starting at a date to be determined between June-July 2024 for a 6-month duration. This position is hybrid and expected to be in-office 3x a week. 

Requirements

  • To be considered, you must be a graduating senior or recent graduate. Why you ask? Because we usually hire for our most junior-level full-time positions (the Assistant Account Executive level) from our intern pool, so we like to have candidates on board who are available to be hired once their internship is over (assuming we have an opening, of course). 
  •  So, who is the ideal candidate? Someone who has an interest in external communications and is looking to work hard and have fun while gaining valuable experience to begin their career in PR. Being able to write well is a must. Research skills are always helpful, as is comfort with pitching media. Prior internship experience is always good to see as well. 
  •  Applications are welcome from students with concentrations in all major areas, but backgrounds in journalism, public relations, strategic communications, English, and radio and television broadcasting are preferred.
