Smart PR and marketing students are already looking for a spring or summer internship, and proactive seekers will have secured several to choose from. According to Glassdoor, more than 27,500 internship positions are open.
To guide young job seekers, Glassdoor compiled a list of the 25 highest-rated companies for internships. The report was based on student internship reviews from the past year.
Facebook made the top of the list, followed by Chevron, Google, Quicken Loans, eBay, Yahoo, Epic, Schlumberger, NBC Universal and BCG in the top 10. Apple, Disney, Exxon Mobile, PepsiCo, Proctor & Gamble and Microsoft were among companies that filled out the list.
Though not all communications internship positions for this spring and summer have been posted, PR and marketing students can get a jump on the competition with this week’s featured listings.
Each internship has specific requirements, but candidates should highlight PR, marketing and social media experience when applying. Candidates must also write well and be able to work with journalists and the members of a brand’s team.
Glassdoor also compiled a map showing the number of available internships in the 20 most-populous cities.
New York City is the clear winner, with more than 2,500 open internship positions, followed by San Francisco with more than 1,500 available internships and Washington, D.C., with more than 1,100 internship positions. Tampa trailed the field with only 169 open internships.
