Social Media/ Public Relations - Kahn Media, a growing public relations firm specializing in the use of social media along with traditional PR techniques, is looking for a student intern who is interested in learning more about PR and marketing. Clients are well known, automotive aftermarket brands, so a passion/knowledge of cars and the automotive industry would be beneficial, though not required. Day to day tasks will vary. Responsibilities include creating media lists, tracking and scanning media placements, online research, social media (Facebook, Flickr, Twitter, Storify, etc.), and scanning forums. There may be some opportunities for writing, as well as pitching the media for the right intern. Design and video could also play a role in the internship, though that is not the primary (or even secondary) focus. Those interested must be interested in pursuing public relations as a career, be organized and detail oriented, work well with others, yet able to work independently, be a good problem solver, be familiar with social media, Microsoft Office (Photoshop and Adobe are a plus), and be available at least two days a week. Compensation is $10 per hour, and can be used for course credit with department approval. An ideal intern would be interested in staying around for future semesters, which may lead to a full time position. To apply, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following: a subject line reading, “PR/Social Media Intern,” a personalized, brief note describing yourself and why you are a fit for the internship, your resume, and the link to Kahn Media’s website and Facebook page in the body of the email.
