This is a great opportunity to learn full-scale public relations for an early-stage tech startup. This internship will build skills relevant for pursuing a career in public relations and marketing on the agency side, or the company side. You will be working directly with the Chief Marketing Office and the CEO, and you will gain extremely valuable hands-on experience researching, designing, and executing a PR program at a young, exciting tech startup. We do not currently have a PR plan, so you will design and help execute that plan. Everything that you do will directly contribute to the growth and success of FaithStreet. There is no “busy” work. We’ll evaluate your performance based on the relationships you build and the stories you successfully pitch for FaithStreet.
