PA Builders Association Internship

Dr. Reed,

I work for Pennsylvania Builders Association (PBA), as a PR Specialist.

I am the editor of their bi-monthly magazine (Keystone Builder) so I will be getting quite a bit of PR and writing experience.

Recently, I was informed that I will be taking on an intern this summer. Please pass the info on to any interested students.

It’s unpaid but the learning opportunity is great. The intern will be getting "hands on" editing experience for the web, a print magazine, and other publications, along with a few bylines.

Desktop publishing will definitely come into play as InDesign is the main program. He/she will have media contact/training as well.

Hours are open for negotiation. It’d be great to have a KU student if possible! If you could pass on my contact info (this is my work address), I’m able to take résumés and cover letters at any time.

Thanks Dr. Reed!
