MarCom members are professionals who are passionate about their work and excited to be part of the Spokane community. Often operating in highly visible positions, as spokespeople for our companies, we recognize it is important to share our skill sets with other business sectors and students to ensure the future of our profession.
Each year, MarCom raises funds to provide two to three paid internships for junior or senior level college students studying public relations, communications, or marketing. Students are matched with host companies through a competitive application process and agree to work 30 hours a week for a 10 week period. The experience provides students with invaluable work experience with companies related to their specific career interests. The program offers members a pre-screened, financially supported intern.
