Public Relations Internships

We’ll help you identify internships in the Drake market — and in the industry’s top markets — that can jump-start your career while you’re still a student.

Drake Public Relations students have interned with Meredith Corporation; Drake University Communications; the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, West Des Moines School District and other state and local government agencies; the Iowa Legislature; Drake Athletics, the U.S. Olympic Committee, Iowa Barnstormers, Iowa Cubs and Iowa Buccaneers; Bank of America and Principal Financial Group; the Iowa State Fair; the Integer Group; LS2Group political consultants; Hennepin County Medical Center, Iowa Health Care Association and MidAmerican Energy; Strategic America, and numerous political parties and campaigns at the local, state, and national level.

With our own internship coordinator, we’ll help you find the right job.

Public relations internships are posted on the Drake Media Gigs website and on the bulletin board outside Meredith room 120.
