Description
Grey Public Relations - Winter/Spring Internship

About Grey:
Two things Grey has been doing since 1917: hiring forceful, energetic innovators with diverse skill sets and points of view who can put ideas into motion that lead to results. That’s no coincidence.
Smart, quick, highly motivated business-savvy people have been the backbone of Grey’s Famously Effective work for one hundred years. They are the drivers of business and creative performance that at this point in Grey’s long history have never better. We were named 2016 Cannes Agency of the Year in recognition of our 24 Lions for clients including Volvo, Canon, Gillette, and NFL. Grey was also among the top three agencies at the Effies where our work for clients including Febreze and Volvo were recognized. Famous and Effective. It’s what we do, and it’s part of why Grey was been named Global Network of the Year by Adweek in 2013 and 2015, and Agency of the Year by Advertising Age in 2014.
Of course none of this could have happened without the diverse talent roster we have in place and we are continuing to look for the best talent to join us in the coming year. That’s why we continue to need drivers—people who can help move the agency further on the trajectory of success.

Internship period will be January through May, 40 hours per week.
