The Weber Shandwick First Light Internship Program provides students with the opportunity to apply the theory and skills gained while studying, to a professional PR environment.

If you are a student, your opportunity to shine in the PR and communications industry starts here.

Our First Light Internship Program will help you transition successfully from study to work, in a fun, supportive environment.
