Working for us

It's not for everybody...

If you’re interested in a fast-paced small-team environment with ambitious assignments, demanding standards, and an expectation for curiosity and creativity, you may be in the right place. We seek diversity — in language, background, ethnicity, skill-set, even taste and style. We want budding leaders, thinkers and problem-solvers, people captivated by more than our generous benefits package. Changing the world — even a little bit — isn’t easy. We need people talented enough to break the mold.

And one other job requirement from which no one is exempt:
Each employee must be nice. Weird, we know. We’re like that.

Joining the Staff

We hire people with unique skills or impressive experience in research, marketing, creative services, media, outreach, planning, public relations, or public affairs. We are an affirmative action/equal employment opportunity employer (AA/EEO). To learn more, send a snappy cover letter, resume and work samples to careers@saltermitchell .com

What We Offer

SalterMitchell offers four- and six-month long paid and unpaid internships and externships in our Alexandria, VA, Orlando, FL, and Tallahassee, FL locations. Interns and externs become integral, if temporary, members of project teams, producing reports, conducting interviews, assisting with research, coordinating activities and occasionally even writing ad or PR copy. A graphic design intern and a web development intern are assigned to the creative department.

We are seeking interns interested in more than errand running and Internet research. As a small firm working on a national scale, we rely on interns to add creativity and intelligence to our marketing and communication teams, as ready to write and interview as to collate and photocopy. We want people who are passionate about the work and eager to learn. We want doers.

For our creative, research and behavior-change marketing interns, college graduates and graduate students in communications, journalism, marketing, research, psychology, design or creative writing programs are preferred, but we will also consider undergraduates in their junior or senior years with demonstrated abilities in research, marketing or advertising. In addition, Florida-based college graduates, as well as graduate students and undergraduates, with an interest in public relations and communications can apply for both internships and externships in Tallahassee with our Change Communication team. Excellent writing and analytic skills are essential for any internship. Besides seeking diversity in our workplace, we prefer interns who are personable, creative and blessed with a good sense of humor. Plus: You must be nice.

Current Internships
PR and Marketing Assistant

Tallahassee, FL 

Nothing beats on-the-job training. Our paid internship program allows students in their junior or senior year of college, recent graduates and those pursuing a master's degree, to hone their public relations and marketing skills in a real-world setting. While experiences vary depending on the talents and interests of selected candidates and the projects going on at the time, each intern will leave SalterMitchell PR with a portfolio of projects to demonstrate their abilities as they pursue additional internships and job opportunities.

The successful candidate can expect to develop skills in media monitoring and reporting, traditional media and influencer relations, multimedia content creation, branding, and online and traditional research. These skills will be used for projects like saving rhinos with the International Rhino Foundation, spreading the word about generous economic mobility grants from Bank of America, and keeping Floridians connected with Verizon.

At SalterMitchell PR, we help good causes win and we’re looking for someone who asks thoughtful questions, understands the strategy behind decisions, and engages in developing tactics to ensure our clients get the best we have to offer.
