The RLF internship is very hands-on, gives interns so much experience and provides numerous writing samples to use in future job applications.

My experience at RLF has been far more valuable than any of my academic coursework. This internship expanded my fundamental knowledge of PR and strengthened my strategic writing skills.

RLF has trumped all of my previous internship experiences. After working at RLF, I now know I want to enter agency life.

I expanded my skill set and met some awesome professionals already established in the PR field, which was very helpful in beginning my career.
