2015: 150 PR agency internships, apprenticeships, work experience, graduate schemes & entry-level roles
Jan 2016: Please note that the 2016 version of this list is now available here.
One of the things I’m most often asked about is the importance of internships. Do you really need experience to get into PR or can you go straight onto a graduate scheme? In my experience, it’s absolutely vital that you have previous PR experience before applying for an entry-level job in communications. One of the things I often advise those job hunters to do is to look at the PR Week top 150 agencies and start looking for work experience, internships, apprenticeships and graduate schemes offered by those firms.
So to kick 2015 off in style I’ve done the hard part and trawled through websites to bring you the top 150 companies’ internships, apprenticeships and entry-level opportunities in this handy list.
For an detailed look at careers in the PR industry including how to write a decent CV and cover letters buy my book: How To Get A Job In PR
I’m a fan of infographics. They may be a bit old hat these days but I think they can be a really striking way of presenting information. I had a bash at doing one for ‘How To Get A Job In PR’ and this is the result. It’s surprisingly hard to get across the tone and content of a whole book in one infographic!
