Danielides Communications, Inc. Internship Program
DCI interns receive hands-on PR work experience during their internship and achieve invaluable professional knowledge and skills.
Intern responsibilities include drafting press releases, creating media lists, crafting media pitches, and day-to day contact with clients. We represent clients in a wide range of fields such as healthcare, education, arts and culture, as well as non-profit. Additionally, interns will assist in orchestrating special events at various venues, attending meetings, and assisting with all aspects of daily operations of the agency. Candidates should possess a strong interest in public relations, be self-motivated, hard working, creative, and detail-oriented in addition to responsible, organized, and dependable. Excellent writing skills and computer proficiency (i.e. Internet research, social media and Microsoft Office Suite are a must. Photoshop is a plus).
