Calling All Students: P&G is Hiring a Public Relations Intern!
Nov 3, 2023
At Piper & Gold, we know we have the power to change our community — and our world — for the better. We show up every day committed to supporting a more just, equitable society through communications.
We produce award-winning public relations work (over 100 awards in the past five years!) with a belief there’s always room to improve. At P&G, we’re committed to using our skills for good and helping nonprofits, government agencies, associations and small businesses make a difference.
We’re looking to add a member to our team with an interest in writing, social media and marketing. The Public Relations Intern will work closely with our team and play a critical role in the creation of communications materials across multiple client accounts.
P&G is a boutique agency with elite clients who value our work and time. Due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and the effect it has had on our agency, we have created a remote-friendly environment. While we remain committed to our home state of Michigan, the P&G team is currently working fully remote. This position may work in different formats: fully remote or hybrid. With many of our clients based in Michigan, preference will go to individuals who are looking for a hybrid environment residing in the state of Michigan. For the right candidate, we will consider a permanent remote work arrangement.
We value your time and believe only in paid internships. We’re looking for an intern who can work a minimum of 20 hours per week, and preference will be given to those who can commit to at least a full year. The starting rate for our internships is $15 per hour.
Please note that the initial review of applications will begin on Nov. 20. Applications submitted after that date will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
