By Megan Gould
Posted on 14 October 2019 | 4:31 pm — 

With Who:  Ketchum (see info on Fellows Program)

Dates:  Summer 2020

Position Description:  We look for diverse internship candidates with strong writing capabilities, intellectual curiosity, an obsession with trends, impeccable multitasking abilities, and a passion for digital communication and social media. Internship candidates should be eager to learn and willing to go above and beyond. That’s the Ketchum way.

What We Look for in Candidates:  

  • Strong writing capabilities
  • Intellectual curiosity
  • Awareness (and perhaps “obsession”) with current trends
  • Impeccable multitasking abilities
  • Savvy with social media
  • A strong work ethic
  • Eager to learn and willing to go above and beyond

Eligibility Requirements:  This opportunity is only available to students completing their undergraduate or graduate degree in 2020 or 2021. If you meet the qualifications to participate in the LaunchPad game you’ll be required to answer the fictitious challenge questions between January 23 – January 27 as well as participate in the LaunchPad game between January 30 – February 3.

Application Process:  LaunchPad gives us a tool to hire candidates based on their potential versus what they have had the opportunity to do. While past internships are still beneficial, raw talent and creative problem solving skills are essential as well. Candidates will answer two ficticious client challenges that will measure their creative, digital, writing and general PR skills. All responses will then be posted and applicants will vote and comment on all posts. Top applicants will be chosen to proceed to the interview stage based on the points they earn. Are you ready for this game changer? Game on!

Application Opening and Deadline:  Applications open on January 1, 2020. The deadline to apply is January 20, 2020 at 9:00 pm

Apply (or see more information):  Keep an eye on Handshake for the application link!
