Intern responsiblities

For the summer of 2017, MindFire is looking for a savvy, motivated intern interested in getting plenty of hands-on experience in public relations.

MindFire’s Public Relations Intern Arsonist will be responsible for key aspects of the implementation of a multimedia campaign that targets non-profit organizations.

  • Call non-profits and encourage them to register.
  • Confirm registrants qualify for contest.
  • Write copy in the form of press releases, social media posts, and marketing letters that promote the campaign.
  • Help non-profits understand how to use the marketing tools designed to help them get votes for their organization.
  • Document activity from each non-profit to demonstrate to our client how the campaign is building their brand awareness. This includes the creation of a campaign recap binder that showcases how the campaign was publicized throughout the media.
  • Track campaign metrics.

In addition to this project (which would look great in a portfolio) our Intern Arsonist will have the opportunity to work on a variety of projects across the agency, contributing to content development, social media, website development, client campaigns, event planning and more.
