CHELSEA'S PICK: Public Relations Intern at ext.54

As someone who works with students interested in public relations, I was incredibly excited to stumble upon this internship! Public relations is one of those fields that tends to hire more "in the moment" than months in advance, which often means they don't recruit quite as heavily on campus--students have to seek them out! While this is true, it is fun to see that there are actually quite a few PR internships on Handshake. If you're interested in being in Chicago and experiencing what it feels like to work in a small PR firm, this is a great opportunity to take advantage of!
