A communications internship is a period of work experience, given by an employer to students or graduates, to gain exposure in the area of internal and external corporate communications. The internships generally last for about two months.
Among the daily tasks an intern will do include: assisting with public relations collateral, producing presentation materials, managing website content, and developing media output. Besides that, they also assist in event management as well as participating in volunteering initiatives.
Employers require communications interns to have work eligibility and usually to be in the second year of their university course or equivalent. Some internships provide a stipend, such as ones at Google. Having an internship is extremely advantageous to landing a full-time job in any company.
