The APCO internship is designed to give interns a valuable educational experience, with exposure to a wide range of client work. While APCO interns are encouraged to develop their interest in either public relations or government relations, they will gain exposure in both practice areas. Outstanding interns may be given the opportunity to transition to permanent, full-time employment. The following are specific duties assigned to interns and are performed on a daily basis:
Requirements & qualifications:
Education: Bachelor or master’s degree in progress, preferably in journalism, advertising, political science or related fields
Experience: Relevant internship experience preferred
Languages: Excellent written and oral communication skills in Mandarin and English required
Candidates should be able to commit to a full-time internship for 3-6 months, but the weekly hours can be negotiated according to the candidate’s academic schedule.
