ABOUT THE INTERNSHIP
Internships at Jackson Spalding offer a hands-on opportunity to gain valuable public relations and marketing experience in an agency environment. We seek and hire friendly go-getters who possess the five Cs: character, class, confidence, chemistry and competency. We also look for self-starters with a passion for Communications, Advertising and Marketing who are committed to continuous learning to grow their professional experience. We foster personal and professional growth for our employees in a variety of ways. We learn from others and then build upon it, so others can learn from us.
