The University of Florida College of the Arts is seeking student candidates for an unpaid internship in public relations/marketing for the summer and fall semesters of 2017.
The College of the Arts is one of 16 colleges and more than 150 research centers and institutes at UF and one of the largest producer of arts events in North Central Florida, with exciting contemporary and traditional events in visual art, dance, theatre and music, as well as research, scholarship and creative activities contributed by faculty, students and alumni.
The College of the Arts comprises UF’s School of Art + Art History, School of Music, School of Theatre + Dance, Center for Arts in Medicine, Center for World Arts, Center for Arts and Public Policy and Digital Worlds Institute.
Interns will gain experience in social media management, writing (for the college’s website, e-newsletter and press releases) and assisting in the development and execution of numerous public relations, marketing and student recruitment campaigns. Interns will also assist with special events.
Applicants should possess strong writing and editing skills, knowledge of AP Style and be detail-oriented. Experience with Adobe Creative Cloud, graphic design, photography and videography is also looked upon favorably. Having a connection to the arts, such as being a double major or minor, is a plus.
Interns must be available 10 hours per week for a minimum of one semester. Interns must also be able to work evenings and weekends, as many of the college events happen out of normal work hours.
Interns will work in the Dean’s Office in the College of the Arts’ Office of Development, which encompasses the public relations and marketing team. Additionally, it is required the candidate be willing to use his/her own laptop computer for the duration of the internship.
This internship program will accommodate academic requirements (hours, evaluation, etc.) for students earning credit for internship/field experience or otherwise assigned as an academic requirement.
