Diversity in Public Relations

A note to you from our friends at PR firm FleishmanHillard:

FleishmanHillard is pleased to announce that we will be accepting applications for our 2016 Alfred Fleishman Diversity Fellowship from November 1, 2016 through March 1, 2017 (with priority review given to those that apply before February 1). Interested students may visit our website for additional information regarding application requirements and qualifications. We are exciting about this opportunity and want to make sure we are able to get the word out to as many viable participants possible, as it is such a great experience for those entering the PR profession.

Our current fellows have had the opportunity to work on client projects, media relations, events, new business pitches, and many other practical experiences in the field of integrated communications. Fellows are engaged in promoting diversity across FleishmanHillard as well as in their local communities. The fellowships are six-to-twelve months in duration, offering a challenging work experience in one of our U.S. offices. The program includes a competitive pay, professional development and senior-level mentorship. In addition, company benefits such as medical insurance, 401k, vacation and sick leave are included.  At the end of the assignment, fellows are given strong consideration for full-time positions with FleishmanHillard based on their job performance and the needs of the business.

Don’t just take our word for it. Hear directly from our fellows about their experience! Check out this video:
