We’re Hiring – Walker Sands Summer Internship Opportunities

Kim Lucio

Looking for a summer marketing or PR internship in Chicago? Walker Sands is currently looking to hire both a Summer PR intern and a Web Marketing intern.

Responsibilities for Chicago PR internship participants:

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

You should have superb writing skills 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.

We would like you to have a strong interest in the media, trends, and what constitutes a good story. If you are a news addict and a journalist wannabe, you'll do well here.

As part of our Chicago PR Summer Internships Program, you will work on a small team for clients that specialize in the small business and technology sectors. You must be able to think on your feet and change gears quickly.

Responsibilities for Chicago Web Marketing internship participants:

Our web marketing intern will be responsible for website content management, marketing support, writing assistance, and social media tasks.

You should have a keen sense of marketing at both a conceptual and tactical level, as most of your responsibilities will fall in line with positioning brands to a web audience. You must have a proficiency in writing that lends itself to the web.

Working knowledge of social media (Twitter, Facebook, blogs, LinkedIn, etc.) as it applies to the business world is a plus.

Some knowledge of the fundamentals of social media marketing a plus; a willingness to learn web marketing fundamentals even better.
