What does a PR Intern do?
Public relations specialists are responsible for growing, shaping, and maintaining a company's reputation and brand. Public relations specialists are tasked with identifying media opportunities, maintaining existing media relations, and promoting positive public awareness of the company through external communications. Public relations specialists can work in-house or for an agency. Public relations specialists span most industries.
Public relations specialists need to have a Bachelor's degree in public relations, marketing, communications, or a related field. Some public relations specialists choose to pursue an Acreditation in Public Relations (APR) by passing an exam, but this isn't always necessary. The best public relations specialists have exceptional interpersonal skills, are strong at time management, and have an eye for detail.
