PR Internship MALS/Red Rover (Spring 2013)

Public Relations Internship

Memphis Area Legal Services and RedRover Sales & Marketing

“Two Experiences in One”


Web
http://www.redrovercompany.com/

Memphis Area Legal Services (MALS), in partnership with RedRover Sales & Marketing, is offering one University of Memphis journalism student the opportunity to participate in a spring 2013 internship for course credit. The selected student will have a unique opportunity for significant skill development and resume-building experience. Responsibilities include:

  • Managing the MALS Facebook and Twitter profiles — from posting original content to sharing/re-tweeting content from other related organizations/influencers to interacting with key influencers through these channels on behalf of the organization. The ultimate goal is to increase the fan/follower base significantly prior to the general public campaign launch next year.
  • Writing and distributing press releases to the media, making follow-up pitches where appropriate.
  • Writing newsletter and email campaign copy.
  • Designing newsletter and email campaigns (dependent upon candidate’s skills).
  • Supporting the organization’s fundraising efforts from a communications and marketing perspective.

The selected intern will be given significant access to the organization’s Executive Director and senior team, including the IT and Development Directors, but will also be given the freedom to drive the MALS marketing and PR effort with a degree of autonomy unique to an intern position.  In addition, the PR intern will be partnered with a law graduate intern to execute the organization’s marketing and PR strategy collectively, offering both interns additional unique development opportunities.

Special consideration will be given to candidates with significant social media experience (e.g., either as part of another internship or individuals with strong Facebook and Twitter followings of their own). Candidates should also have strong writing and pitching abilities.

RedRover Sales & Marketing has selected MALS as its pro bono nonprofit of choice for the 2012 and 2013 calendar years. As such, RedRover will be developing the MALS marketing and PR plan for 2013 – the blue print under which the newly hired intern will operate. In addition, RedRover will be offering the selected intern the opportunity to shadow RedRover during his or her first week on the job – time spent with each member of the RedRover team (one on one), including the CEO, to better understand their roles within the agency and to collect suggestions for promoting the MALS organization. Additionally, RedRover will schedule time with the intern once a month as a follow-up training opportunity.

About MALS: Memphis Area Legal Services is the primary provider of civil legal representation to low-income families in Western Tennessee. The organization helps individuals and families facing critical, situations such as domestic violence, mortgage foreclosure or eviction, wrongful denial of healthcare, predatory lending, or consumer fraud. MALS does not accept fees for its services, relying on contributions from individual and corporate donors.

The organization just entered its fifth decade with the same commitment and determination that inspired 30 members of the legal profession in the wake of Dr. Martin Luther King’s death to coalesce around a shared vision to establish an organization whose single purpose was to provide a means by which the legal problems of the poor could be addressed.

Even with a dedicated staff, it cannot meet the overwhelming demand for legal assistance today. The challenges are more acute because the widening of the “justice gap” is exacerbated by the economic woes of our time. The recent census reveals that more than 57 million individuals live at or below the poverty line, representing more than a 14 million increase since the 2000 Decennial Census. And 26.5 percent of Memphians live in poverty.

About RedRover: RedRover Sales & Marketing is the only Memphis agency to integrate sales training and coaching with marketing and public relations, combining traditional and guerrilla strategies. This unique position helps clients improve sales force productivity, while increasing the return on their internal and external marketing investments. A seven-year-old firm (one dog year), RedRover has experienced rapid growth and expects to continue on that path for the next several years, opening up the door to numerous career opportunities.

To Apply: Interested candidates should send their cover letter and resume, by email to careers@redrovercompany.com or by mail to: RedRover Marketing AE Posting, 415 S. Front Street, Suite 121, Memphis, TN 38103. No phone calls or unscheduled office visits please.
