Effective communication is critical to ensure efficient and seamless business operations. Not only that, but the ability to use our communication skills to influence people, be they potential customers, colleagues or stakeholders, is one of the most sought-after skills in the world today.

Because people with a background in communication are in high demand, you will have your pick of places in which to complete your internship. If you’re looking for a more traditional communications placement, we can find you internships in Media,  Journalism, PR, Marketing or Advertising.

Wherever you are placed, you will hone your time management and self-discipline skills, as well as writing, speaking and listening skills.  As you will be working remotely, you will put communication theories to the test in real-life situations, software and platforms relevant to your career field. This is a great opportunity to make a significant impact on a company.
