PR/Communications Internship at CARE
WHAT: CARE, one of the world’s largest humanitarian organizations, is looking for a PR/communications
intern to work on site at least 15 hours a week.
WHAT WILL YOU DO: Specific tasks include media monitoring and media list development (using a web-
based system for both) as well as the opportunity for media outreach around CARE’s campaigns and
events. You’ll produce a monthly report of media hits and score those hits for message accuracy and
other key metrics.
EXTRA PERKS: You will work with a small-but-mighty communications team led by recovering reporters.
You’ll do your part in literally changing the world: Last year, CARE reached 83 million people around the
world with poverty-fighting programs. We’re located downtown (151 Ellis St.) and offer free parking.
WHO I REALLY WANT: Students that have a natural interest in media and communications. Do you have
more than two news apps on your phone? Can you name at least three news (local and national)
DOES IT PAY? Yes ($10 an hour) AND my interns have gone on to jobs at PR agencies (both global and
local) as well as entry-level marketing positions.
WHEN: This is a little up in the air. My current intern (a December graduate of GSU) can stay until
August but if she lands a full time job before then I’ll need a replacement. I’m exploring candidates now
so I’ll be prepared either way. End date is negotiable but if it’s working for us both, you can stay for up
to a year.
