INTERNSHIP DESCRIPTION

Interns will have the opportunity to shadow and work with full-time publicity teams on marketing projects, gaining insight into ideation, strategy formulation and campaign execution in real-world situations. The internship program is designed to teach interns about the publicity and promotions industry from an agency perspective.

Duties may include, but are not limited to:
o Campaign Brainstorming – participating in discussion sessions to suggest publicity stunts, promotional event ideas and other elements of a potential campaign for specific film titles;
o Targeted Outreach – Working with local organizations, schools, retail outlets and other groups to fill advance screenings of new films with an audience that will spread positive word of mouth to their friends;
o Event Planning and Execution – Under the supervision of Allied publicists, interns will ideate and execute events that reach the targeted demographics for each film Allied handles. Examples include bar nights, dorm movie marathons, Greek system parties, etc.
o College Marketing – Interns are our eyes and ears in the college world. Interns work with schools in their territory to further awareness of upcoming films at the direction of Allied’s publicists.
o Screening and Event Management – Working with Allied publicists to manage various events as needed.

PORTFOLIO PIECES

The goal of the Allied internship is to provide real-world education for future entertainment publicists. Therefore, interns are encouraged to approach every project with an eye towards resume building and professional development.

These portfolio pieces can consist of anything that the intern chooses (with a few exceptions, noted below). They may be prepared in any format you choose.

An example might be a film wherein the intern organized a college class lecture with a visiting filmmaker and had college newspapers cover the lecture, or pitched and planned a charity event with a school’s Greek system, themed to an upcoming film.

Exceptions – Interns must work under the close supervision of Allied staff to ensure that no sensitive or proprietary information is released.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT TO LEARN DURING THE COURSE OF YOUR INTERNSHIP?

Allied Global Marketing is committed to making our internship program a valuable educational experience for all participants. Over the course of your internship, you will have a first-hand view of life at a marketing agency, working with publicists to learn how they go about their jobs. You will have the opportunity to learn about:
· Targeting and recruiting audiences for specific film screenings. By participating in screening recruiting, you will gain experience pitching your film to various retail, college and organizational outlets. You will learn why certain screenings might be targeted to certain types of outlets, and how to speak to those different outlets in a way that ensures their interest in getting their patrons and members to attend a screening.
· Pitching press to cover client projects. Your supervisors will discuss how they go about the business of pitching press. How do they decide which press to pitch? How do they get a reporter’s attention? In some cases, depending on client wishes and resources available for a given campaign you may even be able to pitch college press yourself. These opportunities might include reviewing a new film, interviewing an actor from the film, writing a piece about the film’s costumes or set design, or reporting on a new trailer launch. Use your imagination – what would YOU want to read about in your school paper, and develop a pitch with that in mind!
· Developing and implementing promotional events. Working with your supervisors, you will review client positioning and goals for a given project. As a college student, you’re an expert on the fun things that go on around campus – is there a way to tie a client project into those events? Does a bar night make sense? How about a movie marathon in a dorm? A costume party on Greek Row? A fashion show in the Quad? There are endless possibilities…once you decide what you want to do, now you get to make it a reality! Event conception and management are a huge part of agency work.
· Preparing reports for clients. Reporting sounds boring, but it is vitally important to our role as marketers. You will learn how reporting works for a variety of clients, and by doing so you will gain a deeper understanding of why we employ the tactics that we do to realize each project’s broader strategy. You will also gain perspective juggling deadlines for a variety of clients, which is an integral part of agency work.
· Industry research tools. You will have the opportunity to learn about tools common in the PR industry including media databases, monitoring platforms and analytic tools. You will also gain exposure to tools specific to entertainment marketing such as ticketing services and back-end reporting websites.
· Developing contacts in the market. You may meet a number of different people through your internship including press, promotional partners, agency vendors, city and regional government officials, studio staff, talent publicists and more. Use this internship as a way to develop your professional contact list – you never know when or how your paths will cross again!

You will learn to TELL A STORY. Allied’s client base consists of the best storytellers in the world, and in order to thrive at any publicity or marketing agency you must become a storyteller as well. If you decide to pursue a career in marketing, you will need to learn the art of storytelling.

When speaking with press, you are telling them your client’s story and why that is worth their coverage. No one wants to cover something that isn’t compelling to their readers or viewers.
When speaking with promotional partners, you are telling the story of how a client’s project relates to their audience. Why should they give us some of their limited airtime or print space for free?
When speaking with clients, you are telling them the story of their campaign – what are you doing to further their goals? What have you accomplished on their behalf? Are there challenges that need to be discussed?

James Alan Cox Foundation Scholarship for Student Photojournalists
Focus of work and entries: PHOTOJOURNALISM. (Please see the 2018 or previous years’ scholarship recipients to view examples of winning photographs and videos.) Scholarships will be awarded to those students whose videos or photographs “tell a story”. This is a fairly broad topic and may include a variety of subject matter and approaches (breaking news, sporting events, etc.) In terms of still photography, the five images you submit may be in the form of stand-alone images or a sequence of images. Please keep in mind that we are not looking for “art” photography. Again, we are looking for photojournalism – or “stories.” Your towns and cities are filled with them: families greeting soldiers returning from war zones, doctors and nurses saving lives, church members helping others while on mission trips, 4th of July and Memorial Day parades with veterans of wars past, fire fighters and policemen performing heroically, heart-warming rescues of family pets, a young person helping an older person cross a street, a resident returning to a home that had been severely damaged by a natural disaster. Human-interest stories told in photographs can be understood without the need for words. How does the image make you feel? Is there humor in the pictures? Is there movement? We are asking you to do a lot with this application – write an essay and send us your transcript and recommendations – so please don’t ruin your chances of being considered by submitting pictures taken of flowers, glamour shots or kittens – no matter how adorable they may be. Good luck!

Scholarship applications must be submitted between July 15, 2019 and Midnight, the Evening of November 15th, 2019.

Scholarships will be announced and awarded in early to mid-December.

Fox News Multimedia Reporters Training Program
The Fox News Multimedia Reporters Training Program is like no other program in the industry. Ten qualified candidates are positioned in ten different locations around the country to shoot, report, edit, and produce their own high-end content across Fox News platforms. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to develop and grow your journalism skills at the most powerful company in the news industry.

The Fox News Multimedia Reporters Training Program (MMR) is part of our company’s ongoing mission to invest in talent. It was implemented in 2011 to build a pipeline for the next generation of skilled, hardworking multi-platform journalists.

The Multimedia Reporters operate as one-person-bands with the ability to go live virtually anytime, anywhere. They are trained on top-of-the-line video equipment and streaming technology. Each day they gather news information, conduct live and taped interviews, write stories and deliver news reports on all Fox News & Fox Business media platforms. Throughout this two-year experience, the reporters are provided with the tools, resources and guidance to develop a comprehensive skill set that prepares them for future work in the field.

The MMR program begins with an intensive week-long, hands-on technical training session at Fox News’ New York City headquarters. The reporters are then dispatched to their locations where they receive daily guidance and feedback from management. Whether it’s an assignment manager reviewing daily pitches, a senior vice president evaluating production and writing skills or a veteran correspondent critiquing storytelling, we challenge the Multimedia Reporters to continually hone their journalistic skills and capabilities.

A team from Fox will be at the School on Tuesday March 26. Come learn what the Reporters Training Program is all about and learn about network opportunities. Who should attend?

Summer 2019- Radio Production Internship- PAID
Science Friday is your one-stop shop for all things science, from the microbiome to Mars. The radio show, hosted by Ira Flatow, broadcasts live each Friday on public radio stations nationwide. We continue the conversation on our website with articles and videos, and our documentary podcast: Undiscovered. Check it out!

This is your chance to be a part of the action—Science Friday is currently offering a summer radio production internship.

Each week, Science Friday’s radio producers interview scientists from around the world about their groundbreaking and newsworthy achievements (and we report on the occasional weird animal discovery). SciFri producers pitch show topics, pre-interview and book guests, gather sound, write on-air copy and questions, and manage the logistics of the live show. Science Friday radio interns will assist in every step of that process—and yes, you will learn to channel the voice of Ira!

Radio production interns must be available to work in Science Friday’s midtown Manhattan office for 25 hours a week. Daily schedule is flexible apart from Fridays.

Start date is flexible—mid to late June.

The ideal candidate will have some journalism experience, preferably in a radio or podcast setting, and an unquenchable curiosity about science and the way things work. You’ll be a stickler for detail, a fluid and fun writer who triple-checks facts, and skilled at selling your ideas to other science geeks. Bonus points if, like us, you’re obsessed with the microbiome. And while you may not be an expert on quantum entanglement, you’d at least enjoy a week’s worth of phone calls about it. Oh, and do you follow us on Twitter?

Please email a resume, cover letter with links to three examples of your work (audio, video or written is fine); and one 150-200 word SciFri story pitch to: Alexa Lim, radiointern@sciencefriday.com, subject: “Summer 2019 Radio Internship.”

OTHER INTERNSHIPS

Summer 2019- Radio Production Internship- PAID
Science Friday is your one-stop shop for all things science, from the microbiome to Mars. The radio show, hosted by Ira Flatow, broadcasts live each Friday on public radio stations nationwide. We continue the conversation on our website with articles and videos, and our documentary podcast: Undiscovered. Check it out!

This is your chance to be a part of the action—Science Friday is currently offering a summer radio production internship.

Each week, Science Friday’s radio producers interview scientists from around the world about their groundbreaking and newsworthy achievements (and we report on the occasional weird animal discovery). SciFri producers pitch show topics, pre-interview and book guests, gather sound, write on-air copy and questions, and manage the logistics of the live show. Science Friday radio interns will assist in every step of that process—and yes, you will learn to channel the voice of Ira!

Radio production interns must be available to work in Science Friday’s midtown Manhattan office for 25 hours a week. Daily schedule is flexible apart from Fridays. Interns with production commitments for the Friday show must also be easily reachable by email/cell even when off-site. The radio internship will last 12 weeks, and the pay will be $15/hour. Start date is flexible—mid to late June.

The ideal candidate will have some journalism experience, preferably in a radio or podcast setting, and an unquenchable curiosity about science and the way things work. You’ll be a stickler for detail, a fluid and fun writer who triple-checks facts, and skilled at selling your ideas to other science geeks. Bonus points if, like us, you’re obsessed with the microbiome. And while you may not be an expert on quantum entanglement, you’d at least enjoy a week’s worth of phone calls about it. Oh, and do you follow us on Twitter?

Please email a resume, cover letter with links to three examples of your work (audio, video or written is fine); and one 150-200 word SciFri story pitch to: Alexa Lim, radiointern@sciencefriday.com, subject: “Summer 2019 Radio Internship.”

The deadline to apply is Friday, March 22, 2019.
