Internships

If you’re interested in public relations and integrated marketing communications and want to ‘learn by doing,’ Schneider Associates is a great place to grow your skills. You’ll gain valuable agency experience, build a solid portfolio and have fun.

Our internship program is rated among the top programs in the U.S. We offer Launch PR, digital PR and social media guidance, which provides our interns with an opportunity to learn key disciplines from agency professionals. In addition, interns participate in monthly workshops to help hone their skills for a career in the marketing communications, PR industry and beyond including resume writing and job interview training.

We created our internship program with the intention of getting students more involved in doing the work rather than just creating media lists and making copies. When our interns prove they can contribute to our teams, we love to give them more challenging work that can provide hands on experience you can’t find elsewhere. Our interns are an integral part of our team and with their hard work, our team will do its best to provide you with the opportunities you seek.
