We make sure our interns get the hands-on experience that will set them apart from other job seekers when they enter the "real world" (a few Tricom interns even have been hired full time after graduation!). We encourage college juniors and seniors to apply, and our internships are available each semester, including the summer. Many interns use the Washington Center to receive college credits during their time in Washington, D.C.
Our interns maintain a Twitter feed during their time with us; be sure to follow them at @TricomU to see what they're doing and what's happening at our firm.
Here is what past interns have said about their time with us:
"Every person at Tricom genuinely wants to help you get the most out of this learning experience. They want to teach you. They want you to walk away from this with confidence that you know volumes more about public relations than you did when you first walked into the office."
--Kayla, Spring 2010
"Completing a Tricom internship will provide you with the perfect transitional experience that eases you out of the fairy tale land known as college and into the real world."
--Nate, Summer 2009
"I learned so much here at Tricom....It is a small office so you will get to know everyone and get to be treated more like a fellow employee rather than an intern."
--Ashleigh, Spring 2009
"This isn't one of those internships where you go and get people coffee all day. You actually get to write press releases, make pitch calls and work on all sorts of databases and projects. It's pretty cool being able to see your hard work really paying off and knowing that you helped out."
--Sharon, Summer 2007
