O’Malley Hansen Communications (OHC) is an agency focused on building brand visibility and company reputation through national and local media relations, social media, employee engagement and influencer outreach. With offices in St. Louis, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and Madison, our team includes professionals with experience in agency, corporate, government and association environments providing superior client service to our growing list of marquee clients.
We are currently seeking a full-time public relations intern for our St. Louis office.
OHC offers paid internship opportunities to college students and recent graduates (preferred). Interns work directly with OHC mentors on a wide range of communications functions. Interns can expect to gain hands on, real world experience in public relations and serve as an extension of the full-time staff.
Candidates should possess strong communication skills and be able to handle multiple roles, write effectively and move quickly between tasks. A strong understanding of cultural trends and social media is highly desired. OHC interns are expected to be well organized and fast learners. Backgrounds in journalism, communications, PR, marketing, advertising and business management are preferred, but not required. Candidates must have completed their junior year in college. Previous internship experiences a plus, but not required.
During this time, we are continuing to keep the safety of employees top of mind and are working remotely. We will continue to evaluate in-office gatherings on an ongoing basis but do expect this candidate to work from the St. Louis area.

• Developing media lists
