ECPR’s Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
ECPR is committed to implementing the many pillars of diversity, equity and inclusion throughout our office and in our work. We affirm that our full potential as a company is only achieved when all voices, identities and perspectives are included; this guiding principle also translates into wins for our clients. We recognize DEI is a forever-developing initiative and teaching moment. This is why we proactively take it upon ourselves to invest in and affiliate with groups and organizations that commit themselves to being anti-racist, equality advocates that are centered around equitable solutions.
We believe the “E” in our name also stands for “everyone.” That is exactly how we like to do business. For everyone, with everyone in mind.
ECPR has offered an extensive internship program since 1995. (Our CEO and two vice presidents started their careers here as interns!)
An applicant must be a senior or recent graduate majoring in public relations. The intern will be included in challenging assignments and client work and will be paid $15/hour. It is important for interns to commit to the internship for the entire semester.
Deadlines are typically December 1 for the spring semester; April 19 for the summer semester; and July 31 for the fall semester.
An internship opportunity is given to two students per semester. One intern will work 15 hours/week on Monday/Wednesday/Friday 9 a.m.-2 p.m. A second intern will work 10 hours/week on Tuesday/Thursday 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. The intern will be assigned a staff mentor.
Our intern will perform such tasks as creating media lists, coordinating research projects, providing event assistance, monitoring and clipping media coverage, preparing social media posts, writing and editing press materials, distributing news releases, assembling media kits and helping with various administrative duties.
Ideal candidates have had numerous public relations classes, have strong writing skills, are familiar with the Associated Press (AP) writing style and are comfortable with creating and editing lists in Microsoft Excel. Candidates must complete an application and provide a resume, cover letter and professional letter of recommendation from a previous employer or internship supervisor. If a professional letter is not available, a letter of recommendation from a public relations professor will suffice.
If you have any questions not addressed above, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and someone will get back to you.
