Recognition launches paid internship for 2012
Graham writes......If you have left University and are still looking for a position, I know there are loads of people like you and I want to help. Recognition Marketing and PR has launched a new paid internship programme and is recruiting its first candidate but hurry up, we've had lots of applicants so far and the deadline is 29th February!
The paid internship will begin in March or April this year and will run for three months. It could thewn lead to a full time job depending on your performance and that of the business. The intern will support the two teams that make up Recognition PR, the consumer team and the business-to-business team. Daily tasks will include client research, event organisation, updating clients' websites and writing press releases.
Recognition Marketing and PR was one of the first businesses to sign up to the Northern Echo's Foundation for Jobs programme and is committed to supporting young individuals who want to embark on a career in marketing and public relations. Recognition PR has recently employed two young individuals in full time paid jobs who were struggling to gain experience within this sector.
It's disappointing that many firms are using interns in the North East, but not paying them. By paying interns a modest sum you can give them a real taste of the cut and thrust of life in the workplace. I am proud that Recognition is setting a positive example.
Applications with a full CV can be sent to: email@example.com. Deadline for applications is the 29th February 2012 - see the careers section of the Recognition website for further information.
