Public Relations Intern (Remote)

Looking for a PR internship? Walker Sands is looking for an energetic, detail-oriented person to serve as a public relations intern for a paid, full time, remote 12-week internship reporting to our Chicago office.


Our PR intern will be responsible for developing media lists, conceptualizing and executing pitches, writing press releases and coordinating contributed articles.

We are looking for someone with a strong interest in the media, trends, and what constitutes a newsworthy story. We're looking for candidates with a solid writing foundation and an interest in conducting web research. You must have an obsession with grammar and the ability to take mediocre writing and make it stronger. If typos jump off the page at you, it is a good sign. 

As part of our PR Internship Program, you will work on a small team for clients that specialize in B2B and technology sectors. You must be a self-starter and able to think on your feet and change gears quickly. At the end of the internship, you will have had in-depth exposure to what it's like to work in the PR industry.


  • Passionate about the PR/Communication industry.
  • A desire and eagerness to learn and grow.
  • Ability to work a full time schedule, Monday thru Friday, 9:00am - 5:00pm CST.
  • Current student or recent graduate (from an undergraduate or Master's program) with coursework in journalism, marketing communications, english, or business.

Internship Details
