OK, I’m prejudiced, but I think the attached podcast prepared by Peppercom’s most recent cast of college interns is outstanding. Sure, it suffers from some amateurish production (but so does Repchatter). And, sure our erstwhile interns aren’t saying anything necessarily new or profound (ditto for Repchatter). But, this 20-minute discussion is incredibly insightful and helpful and, I believe, should be made mandatory listening for any college student seeking a career in PR.
You’ll hear Jackie Holmes and the other interns tell you exactly what to expect from your internship and exactly how you can best leverage your internship to gain full-time employment. ‘Nuff said?
One last point: I would have killed to have known some of these things before starting my first professional internship.
I listened to this podcast a couple weeks ago. I met Alyson Buck at the Ithaca College Networking Night last week and mentioned to her that I found the podcast very interesting. As a junior who is currently looking for an internship in Public Relations, it really gave me a better understanding of what it is like to intern at an agency.
Hey thanks for the post Steve! Glad to see my fellow Auburn friend will keep the intern podcast alive. Miss you all tons! -Jackie
I’m game, Amelia.
Steve, great mention of the Peppercom intern Podcast. I hope that we live up their standards. We have already started brainstorming with ideas. Maybe add an interview with the RepMan himself?
