Someone who has an interest in external communications, crisis and risk and media relations 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 and building media lists. Prior internship experience is always good to see as well.
