Summer 2023 Fellowship (Spring 2023 Graduates) Job ID: 74084
SGPR is a creatively-driven media relations, influencer, and experiential agency championing a personal approach to public relations.
Our clients range from Fortune 500 brands to challenger startups. We’ve launched brands that challenge the norm like Billie, created a closet calculator to see how recycled clothing impacts the environment with thredUp, and poked fun at McDonalds broken ice cream machines with Jack In The Box.
Don’t be fooled by the name – while the agency may have been founded by two “”small girls”” (our founders are under 5″”3 and as self deprecating as they are short), we are committed to being a diverse and high performing company that is dedicated to creating an inspiring workplace for everyone – including men (who sit on both our leadership and people policy team) and taller individuals (who compromise of the entire company save for a few even smaller smalls).
What is the SGPR Summer Fellowship?
The Summer Fellowship is a 12-week full-time work experience and training program running June 5th, 2023 through August 25th, 2023. Open to Spring 2023 graduates only, this paid and highly competitive opportunity will give aspiring communications professionals the chance to learn from and work alongside the team at Small Girls PR as full contributing team members (aka no coffee runs!). The aim of the SGPR Summer Fellowship is to prepare recent graduates with the foundational skills necessary for most entry-level jobs in PR, communications, and beyond.
We plan to prioritize candidates who are able to work out of our NY or LA office 2x/per week (on a predetermined schedule that optimizes in-office collaboration with a fellow’s respective team). If you’re only able to work remotely for the 12 week period, please feel free to apply knowing that in-person is ideal and will be prioritized. Additionally, this opportunity has the potential to lead to permanent, full-time employment as an Account Coordinator, therefore all eligible applicants must be willing to work out of our NY or LA office 2x/per week upon completion of the Fellowship, as it is a condition of accepting a spot in the Fellowship program.
