At RBOA and Digital Opps, we are always looking for fresh talent to take advantage of our internship opportunities. The ideal candidate is an articulate, organized, conscientious university student majoring in public relations, digital design or a related field, with strong writing and research skills and a thirst for knowledge.

Both internship positions are an intensive and eye-opening experience for the beginning public relations or digital web design professional.  We entrust our interns with sizeable projects, promotions and other activities; assisting with event planning and press conferences; engaging in social media and digital marketing; and representing the agency as an extension of the account team.  Interns are encouraged to ask questions, attend industry events and make the most of their experiences throughout the semester.

RBOA offers fall, spring and summer opportunities and both internships consist of 20 set hours per week, arranged to complement class schedules, and pays a stipend, plus reimbursement for mileage accrued during work-related tasks.  More than that, the professional experience, relationships and confidence gained through a successful RBOA internship are priceless.
