If we could describe Franco in one word, it would be TEAM. Sure, we are driven by data and strategy, but at our core, it’s our people who power our agency. We are always looking to connect with creative, energized, self-starters from all walks of life and industry. Our team building is guided by our six core values: forward motion, opportunity, courageous truth, empathy, persistence and family+team+community.
What’s a typical day like at Franco? That’s a trick question since there’s no so such thing as typical day! But you can check out what our teammates have been up to on our Franco On the Town blog posts.

FRANCO INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
The Franco intern experience is an immersive opportunity to learn the inner workings of a PR agency. Our internship is a structured training program including daily account responsibilities where teammates will have a chance to hone their writing, research, media relations and event skills. Simply put, interns are an integral part of the team with important responsibilities for our clients.
Franco internships are full-time, paid positions open to college juniors and seniors majoring in public relations, communications or a related field, as well as recent graduates. An ideal intern candidate has:
- previous internship experience (required)
- previous agency experience (preferred)
- a creative mind, a positive attitude and an eagerness to learn
- strong writing and communication skills
- strong attention to detail and organizational skills
- the ability to multi-task and work with a team in a fast-paced environment
- a basic understanding of traditional and social media
”The thing that sets Franco’s internship program apart from others is the way Franco treats their interns. Many companies don’t put in the time and effort to actually teach their interns, and interns spend time completing busy work. Franco wants their interns to learn and evolve, and the team puts in the time to help them do so. The team at Franco is willing and excited to help interns learn and share their expertise. I think the Franco internship program is extremely effective, and I learned more than I ever could have imagined!Emily Hebertformer intern who is now a full-time employee as assistant to the president

What other Franco interns have said:
I learned so many valuable things during this internship. I learned all the different areas of public relations, as well as the different areas Franco has as an integrated communications agency. I learned how to tailor social media content and writing for different clients and audiences. I improved my writing for press releases and pitches. This experience will benefit my future in so many positive ways.
Interns are given so many opportunities to experience projects in action, whether it’s live TV segments, media drops, concerts, galas or photo and video shoots, I was able to see where all the hard work was going.
