PR and Marketing Intern

College students and recent graduates looking to gain real-world public relations and marketing experience are encouraged to apply to become an intern with Compass. This fully virtual intern program offers many opportunities to learn about public relations and marketing, and gain real-world experience.

Interns assist our team with tasks such as drafting press releases brainstorming media pitches, developing social media content, assisting with research, and preparing client reports. As a boutique high-tech communications agency, Compass interns benefit from working closely with the agency principals on client projects, develop ideas for strategic initiatives and campaigns, and learn insider tips on how to develop compelling content that delivers.

The application period for our Summer 2023 internship is now open! Applications that are submitted by June 23, 2023, will be considered.
