Public Relation Internships
The mission of the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden is to build and maintain a public garden that promotes the art, enjoyment, and knowledge of horticulture, while providing opportunities for education and research.
The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens Public Relations and Marketing team is looking for two part-time interns to help us achieve a number of goals this season and secure excellence in media relations and corporate communications as we promote our spring and summer programming.
Preferably, one intern will focus on PR outreach and marketing, while the other will focus on digital marketing and communications. Because we expect both interns to be flexible and help as needs arise, these positions are ideal opportunities for undergraduate students who want “on-the-ground” marketing and communications experience across a variety of media in a fast-paced, fun work environment.
Time Frame & Compensation
The ideal candidate would be able to commit for the spring semester for a minimum of 15 hours a week. This is an unpaid internship but college credit is available if offered by your college or university.
