Peppercomm: Seeking Interns (Summer 2021)

With Who:  Peppercomm

Location:  New York City, NY (potential for some remote work)

Dates:  Summer 2021

Hours:  Candidates must be able to work 37.5 hours per week, Monday through Friday, 9AM – 5:30PM.

Position Summary:  (This is a paid internship.)  Are you a champion conversationalist that can talk to your friends about anything? Are you looking for an experience that will allow you to be all-in learning about public relations and integrated communications? Do you have a sense of humor worthy of its own stand-up routine? Then maybe you’re made for an internship at Peppercomm.

Peppercomm is seeking outgoing, motivated and creative candidates for our paid internship program. Our interns, who we like to refer to as ‘The PepSquad’, work a full-time schedule allowing them to gain hands-on exposure to the integrated marketing and communications industry. The internship program offers various positions in communications based in our New York office. There is potential for this position to have a portion of the time as “remote” work, but in-office presence (with proper safety precautions in place) at least 1-2 days a week is anticipated.

PepSquad members are supported by the Intern Committee and paired with a buddy to help show them the ropes of the agency. As part of the team, they will be treated like an entry-level communications pro. The paid internship session will run from 6/7/21 to 7/30/21.

Responsibilities:  There are too many responsibilities to list, but here are several to get you started:

  • Developing Media Lists
  • Media Monitoring and Clipping
  • Media Pitching
  • Participation on internal and client calls
  • Research
  • Social media management and content development
