Location: Dallas, Texas

Job Type: Full-Time (40 hours/week)



Do you love pulling off successful campaigns that get results? We’re looking for a public relations intern who is passionate about learning more about the thrill of the pitch, building relationships with journalists, and tracking the latest emerging trends and stories. 

About This Role

As a public relations intern, you’ll play a pivotal role in supporting our larger PR team as we help our B2B technology clients increase their visibility with target audiences across the spectrum of influence – from trade and top-tier media outlets to podcasts and online influencers. You’ll get hands-on experience developing and executing campaigns, while being mentored and guided by both junior and senior PR team members as you refine your skills and position yourself for future growth.

This could be the perfect role for you if you are:

  • Proactive, unafraid to raise your hand to help a colleague or bring up new ideas
  • Curious, with a constant drive to dig deeper and learn more
  • People-savvy, with the ability to read people and situations quickly and effectively in order to sell ideas and persuade others
  • Nimble, thriving in fast-paced environments with shifting priorities
  • Goal-driven, holding yourself accountable for outcomes and results 

Responsibilities include:

  • Research, develop and maintain media and influencer lists
  • Research client industries and identify key themes and trending topics
  • Draft press releases, pitches and other press materials
  • Develop media playbooks prior to major announcements
  • Conduct media outreach via email and phone
  • Develop interview prep materials
  • Compile media coverage reports
  • Maintain award and speaking opportunity calendars, tracking deadlines and coordinating submissions
  • Maintain working knowledge of PR technology, supporting team requests within our media database, media monitoring and social listening platforms

Relevant (not required) experience includes:

  • 0-1 years of experience in public relations. Prior internships or agency experience is a plus, but we’re open to learning about how your skills and talents would translate to a fast-paced agency environment
  • Collaborate working and communication style
  • Excellent writing skills and knowledge of AP style
  • Strong research skills
