Job Description

Edelman is the world's largest communications marketing firm, with 65 offices and more than 6,000 employees worldwide. Founded in 1952, Dan Edelman planted the seed for a new kind of company - one that would redefine the role of public relations. Sixty-six years later, the company continues to push boundaries. Grounded by core values and strengthened by its independence, Edelman helps clients communicate, engage and build relationships with their stakeholders.

Built on the values of quality, integrity, respect, entrepreneurial spirit, mutual benefits and citizenship, these attributes remain at the core of Edelman's culture today, with quality work being clearly one of the highest priorities. The firm partners with clients to harness public relations and social marketing so that brands, government and business can retain immediacy and transparency and thus build credibility and trust.

Position Summary:

* Seeking a flexible, adaptable, high-energy Intern who can serve as an editor, copy editor, proofreader and writer in the Chicago office of Edelman, the world's most dynamic public relations and communications marketing firm.
* Among the many types of content you may touch are press releases, blog posts, social media postings, infographics, internal memos, executive briefings, media pitches, new business presentations, long-form narrative content, annual reports and email communications.
* You will work with multiple stakeholders to ensure written content is accurate, tight, engaging, high-quality and on-message. To succeed in this job, you'll need to be an equally strong copy editor, proofreader, editor and writer.


* Previous editing, copy editing, proofreading and writing experience via internships and/or school work.
* An expert knowledge of AP style
* A proven ability to manage several projects and deadlines simultaneously
* The right chemistry - we spend a lot of time together and, happily, we like one another, so it's important that we bring aboard creative, high-energy yet easy-going, no-drama types who will broaden our capabilities and perspectives while not taking themselves too seriously
* A bachelor's degree in something interesting (we don't care what it's in as long as you were passionate about it)
