Pegasus Creative interns collaborate often and work in a variety of different areas – just like a real agency. For that reason, all students working with us have the same title: Pegasus Creative Intern. Interns might take photos one day, write a story the next, and then end the week by designing an event poster. There are no defined roles or specific tasks that people are assigned based on a job title. Pegasus interns and University Communications staff work together to find the right people for each project as it comes up. We think this allows for more collaboration and opportunities for students to work on different types of projects – those with which they are familiar and comfortable, and maybe some which they are not. Internships are about learning and sharpening your skills, and in Pegasus Creative, you’ll broaden your knowledge base and widen your wingspan.
Do you have what it takes?
In our recruitment process we look for the same three attributes in all applicants, regardless of their interests. These qualities are vital for the type of work we do.
- Strong writing skills
We do a lot of writing, and a lot of our work is very public, very soon after being written. Whether it’s for a Facebook post or a magazine article, we need students who enjoy writing and are good at it.
- Robust initiative
Pegasus interns work independently of University Communications staff most of the time. There is not a lot of hand-holding and looking over of shoulders. We need students who can take an idea and run with it.
- Polished interpersonal communication skills
The Office of University Communications is the public voice of Oglethorpe and Pegasus Creative is our voice on campus. Interns need to possess professional communication skills both in print and in person. Public speaking and interviewing skills are also valued.
