Turning internship into employment!

Loyalist PR student Ashley Warner at The Beer Store head office in Mississauga
As a part of the Post-Graduate Public Relations Program here at Loyalist College, our students are currently out on their four-week (unpaid) internships.

During this time, students experience what it's like to work in a PR workplace, whether corporate, government, social profit or otherwise.

While on internship, they're able to apply skills in the areas of writing, social media, graphic design, event management, strategic planning and more.

We're proud of our students, and know internship is just one more important milestone along their career paths.

In many cases, students turn their internships into full-time employment, including Ashley Warner (Loyalist PR 2013/14) pictured above.

We're happy to report that Ashley is now the new Public Affairs Coordinator for The Beer Store's head office in Mississauga. Way to go, Ashley!
