Have an opportunity for a third year Public Relations student volunteer?

Have a special project, but no additional resources? Perhaps you require support with your employee communications? Or maybe you’re looking to elevate your online presence in this new environment?

Why not hire a student volunteer?

As you can appreciate, the availability of paid internships has dropped rapidly over the past few weeks. This comes at a time when third year Mount Royal University Public Relations’ students are seeking opportunities for their summer internships and work experience to meet mandatory program requirements.

If you have the capacity and could use additional resources, now may be the time to support the next generation of PR practitioners.

Mount Royal has modified the requirements to maximize flexibility in order to support students’ success. Students are now able to work from home and accept an unpaid position.

For an internship to be viable, an organization would be required to meet the workplace safety requirements and offer a student a minimum of 250 hours of supervised communication or public relations work.

Have an opportunity or interested in learning more? Contact Daniel Santiago, Work Experience Coordinator at dsantiago@mtroyal.ca
