PRSSA Internship Testimonials-- This could be you!

I owe the majority of my recent success to my mentors, who have all challenged me to seek MORE opportunities through internships. Since their challenge, I have engaged in 3 internships, which have all proven invaluable for my career. While I have succeeded in my internships, I have gained industry-specific knowledge and professional experience as well as developed keen professional networks for my network. If you want to kickstart your career, get an internship that will push you to learn and will drive you find your niche within your chosen industry.
— Jon Kovach Jr., PR Intern at Spectrum Science (Washington, D.C.)
I personally believe that internships are CRITICAL to the future success of any aspiring PR professional. NOW is the time that we should LEARN without fear of negative consequences. Internship providers aren’t expecting interns to be perfect. How great is that? They KNOW that we are there to grow and want to help us do it. My current internship that I acquired through PRSSA has truly shaped my personal and professional life. This internship has made me more confident in myself, my public relations knowledge and in my professional abilities. Qualities in which I believe are some of the most important things I can take into an interview.
— Britnee Bromley Nuehring, PR Intern at Thatcher+Co. PR Firm (New York City)
