This internship has public relations, video production and journalism components.
Walker County Government received a grant to create a series of vignettes for our website and social media platforms about how government works. Our government has several confusing pieces that we hope to help the public better understand with these videos. For example, our county has a Sole Commissioner, who is both the executive and legislative branch. We also have a police department AND and sheriff’s office, but they have completely different functions.
This internship pays $10 an hour, begins in June and ends in July and will result in product the intern can use on a demo reel. It is only open to currently enrolled college students (undergraduate and graduate) and those graduating in May.
Attached is an informational flyer. There is also more information about the internship and how to apply on our website at: https://walkercountyga.gov/jobs/public-relations-video-production-intern/

The person doesn’t necessarily have to have a health journalism background, but it is crucial they have some news reporting background. This is truly a hands-on internship; our student from last summer wrote a story practically every day. Past interns have written stories ranging from product recalls to topics trending on social media to longer pieces on food adulteration, pool contamination and egg freezing.
