Summer Internship with Economic Development Council of Snohomish County

Hello there,

My name is Ryan Crowther and I am the current Communications Manager for the Economic Development Council of Snohomish County. I went to Central Washington University and was in their Public Relations program and was heavily involved in PRSSA. After attending CWU’s Public Relations program, I came to the Seattle area and found an internship here.  There was no Communications department when I got here and I had the chance, with the help of peers, co-workers, and other PR relationships, to build a Communications program from scratch.  This was a great experience to have right out of college and with this, came a great opportunity to share this with current upper classmen/graduates.

So, I have talked the EDC into letting me run an internship for the summer. This individual will be assisting me in general communication duties such as media relations (press releases, press calls, press kits, planning), marketing/advertising, website, and internal marketing (newsletters).  This person will need to have strong verbal communication skills, strong internet (powerpoint, web, design, MS office) skills, and be able to work independently.

For more information or to submit resumes, my contact information is listed below.

Former Intern, current KOMO Newsradio Editor

Must have an interest in a news career. You are responsible, proactive, a self-starter, have a positive attitude, and have strong communication and writing skills. You also posses the ability to follow instructions thoroughly, and are able to work well alone and in group settings. Must be enrolled in college, and able to earn college credit for entire quarter.

As an Intern for KOMO Newsradio, you’ll spend time working alongside Editors, Reporters, and Sportscasters. You’ll learn writing techniques that are unique to radio, digital audio production and editing, experience work outside the station in news and sports settings, and receive an introduction to on-air work. KOMO Newsradio is a unique setting in that its format is all-news, 24 hours a day. As an Intern, you understand that this is different from the classroom setting in that there is not constant instruction; you are responsible for gleaning what you can out of your time with KOMO Newsradio. This position requires schedule flexibility, as well as a person who can adapt to changes quickly. On a daily basis, Interns are assigned to different departments, based on that day’s needs. This means hours/workdays can vary, and can include weekends.

Send a cover letter explaining your interest in the Internship and what quarters you’re available, a resume, a sample of your writing (2-3 stories written for radio), and two letters of recommendation (one from a teacher/professor, one from a member of the business community).  Application deadline is 30 days before the quarter begins.
