Friends, neighbors, colleagues, I’m working really hard to expand here at SRPR and I’m starting with an intern who will hopefully turn into a full time assistant or associate publicist this summer. Intern job description below but if you know anyone at the assistant level feel free to send them my way too.
Sarah Russo Public Relations is a literary public relations and media strategy firm excelling in traditional PR, social campaigns and publishing strategy and partnerships.
We are looking for an intern for spring/summer to help with all aspects of running this small business, from writing drafts of press materials and designing galleys to running errands and assisting at parties. The perfect person will be able to devote ten or more hours per week, have great communication skills, be an active reader interested in fiction and nonfiction, and be engaged with the news and on social networks.
There will be opportunities to network, attend events, communicate with clients, sit in on meetings and work on drawing up business proposals. There are many opportunities to learn all about publicity and marketing and also how to run a small business. We will train you in how to use our PA2K database, do research on the Cision database, create lists and maintain them, and do outreach to the media effectively.
Students are welcome to apply and we can work with your schedule and with your school for credit. A travel stipend is provided for interns who can devote 15 or more hours per week. Opportunities to grow into a paid position are available for qualified candidates. Please send a resume and writing sample to: sarah (at) sarahrusso (dot) com.
