Communications Internships

Learn How to Think Strategically

PRSA Silicon Valley's internship program is a training course that allows students the ability to think strategically.

Our interns learn basic principles of introspection to evoke personal curiosity and initiative. Once foundational knowledge is shared and implemented, they learn how to craft communication strategies that are cross-departmental.

Internship Benefits
The curriculum is designed based on what our interns likely work on in their first positions, such as writing agendas, recap reports, status reports, implementing presentations and project management.


Understanding the intern's motivations, passions and areas of improvement at the onset provides a firm foundation and clear path to success and planning.
Consistency and accountability of reporting allow visibility for the intern and their manager. Regular 1:1 conversations allow for relationship building and open communication in a safe environment.
At the end of the program, interns establish more clarity in career and next steps. Additionally, our program boosts confidence during presentational public speaking.
