Are you a self-proclaimed “grammar nerd” and a stickler for AP Style? Do you enjoy getting the latest scoop from local and national news? Are you a self-starter and a team player? If you said “yes” to all of these questions, then consider applying for the Dala Communications summer 2019 internship program!
At Dala, we consider our interns to be a valuable part of the team. We encourage our interns to provide input and share ideas throughout the length of their internship.

Writing, editing and distributing press materials
Developing and pitching stories to the media
Attending print, radio, web and TV news interviews

Working within a client-focused team setting, interacting with all disciplines to get real-world experience and understanding of the collaborative nature of the agency environment
Our PR firm handles a variety of accounts in industries ranging from commercial real estate and construction services to education and corporate social responsibility. We consider our team tiny but mighty, and therefor need an intern willing to work hard and contribute along the way. A successful Dala intern is detail-oriented and a resourceful self-starter with a positive attitude. An understanding of media relations, social media and AP Style, along with strong written and verbal communication skills, are required.
The summer internship typically runs late May through August. Hours are flexible with a minimum of 12 hours a week at our office.
