Partner in Training
Location: San Francisco, Orange County
Finn Partners is seeking a recent college graduate to join our unique partner-in-training program that combines practical skills training in public relations and integrated communications with client-focused responsibilities. The position is based in our San Francisco office – working virtually at the present time – within our technology practice. It is a full-time paid position, three months in duration, with the possibility of transitioning into a permanent role at the end of the program.

As a partner-in-training, you will have the opportunity to learn the foundation of public relations and integrated communications, ranging from media relations to digital and social media, while also developing the critical skills you’ll need to be successful as you grow in this field, from time management to presentation skills, public speaking and more.
This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in beginning their public relations or integrated communications career to work in a fast-paced, entrepreneurial environment where you will be empowered to make a difference, drive outcomes and garner hands-on industry experience working collaboratively alongside both junior and senior staff.
Primary responsibilities may include:
- Build and update media, influencer and vendor lists and databases
