The firm is owned by former journalists who place a premium on writing skills, strong media relations contacts, and the ability to think strategically about placement.

·       You are confident in your ability to think your way through a challenge on a tight deadline;

Candidates must have the following qualifications:

·       Currently enrolled as a college student preferably in communications, journalism or related field;

·       Superb writing abilities;

·       Confident and outgoing personality;

·       Unending curiosity about and voracious appetite for news – local, national and international;

·       Ability to grasp multiple issues across multiple industries within tight deadlines;

·       Detail oriented;

·       Comfortable with both Mac and PC;

·       Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint skills;

Dates are anticipated to be from January to May 2013.
