From an Alum: A PAID summer internship -- and hey, how about free housing, too?

This just in from an '04 grad:

I am a December 2004 TV/R (Ad/PR concentration) graduate of the Park School of Communications, and I am currently working for PNC Financial Services Group in Pittsburgh, PA in their corporate communications office as a communications specialist. I got the job based on the work I did during my internship for them this past summer, and I was informed today that they are still actively looking for a candidate for an intern for this coming summer.

It is an excellent opportunity for anyone interested in Public Relations. The position requires good writing skills and involves writing for both internal employee) and external (media) audiences. Most of the internal communication is done through our employee intraweb and external involves pitching by phone and e-mail as well as the occasional news release. The internship pays (last year it was $16 an hour- I have no idea what they're paying this year) and if you live more than 50 miles outside of Pittsburgh, housing is provided for FREE.

If you know of ANYONE who might be interested, have them contact me at my work e mail address

I don't know if you know of people who are still looking for internships, but this is a great opportunity. More information on PNC, for anyone not familiar with the bank, can be found at Thanks!
