Internships

internsInterns work eight hours each week at the Center for credit hours. Available for students in the Charlotte area, objectives of the CGPR internship are to:

  • Present a real-world environment with practical duties and issues that arise in the public relations practice,
  • Provide on-the-job application of classroom teachings and class work.
  • Identify a student’s strengths and weaknesses.
  • Enhance and develop skills related to professional public relations practice.
  • Enable interns to work with PR professionals, thus getting an understanding of the field from practitioners and scholars/educators.
  • Give interns the knowledge to make the decision as to whether the public relations profession is a suitable career choice.

Internship projects vary, based upon interests and current CGPR projects. Past internship projects include: event planning, research, publication production, and relationship development with organizations.

Interns assist in a variety of capacities, such as event planning, promotion, and research. Visit the Center at Colvard 5043 or email us at CenterGPR@uncc.edu if you are interested in becoming an intern.
