Welcome to the first PRSSA’s Best and Brightest: Internship Review! Each month, I will highlight some of the best opportunities currently listed on the MyPRSA Internship Center in an effort to make your search even easier. These are just a few of my favorites:
Duolingo PR and Social Media Intern
Duolingois the most popular language learning app in the world and they are looking for a full-time intern for 12 weeks this summer in the headquarters. And, it’s paid! They are accepting post-grads as well as those graduating in spring 2020 or earlier.
As an intern, you will generate story ideas that drive press coverage, create social media content, research and identify relevant influencer targets and track and measure press coverage and social media. Part of the position will be thoughtfully growing Duolingo’s global awareness and user base. This opportunity stemmed from the Penn State Regional Conference and I highly encourage you to look into it. Duolingo is a really cool company! Application closes in April.
