summer 2023 Intern EXPERIENCE

Timeframe: June 1, 2023-July 27, 2023


Are you a great writer with a dedication to the craft and an eagerness to learn new things? Do you enjoy using social and digital marketing tools to tell compelling stories and keep people informed? What about the camaraderie of being on a collaborative team of driven and caring professionals? If yes, then keep reading.


Located in the buzzy Flatiron District of New York City, Forefront is an award-winning, rapidly growing marketing and PR firm that services the most influential companies in the capital markets and institutional fintech industries. We apply deep sector knowledge, decades of in-house experience and extensive industry connections to develop highly strategic, bespoke programs that help clients grow, regardless of their lifecycle stage.


We are looking for rising college seniors who are interested in developing their PR and marketing skills in the capital markets and fintech space. The two-month rotational internship will provide the opportunity to gain hands-on experience within Forefront’s four practice areas:


  • Content
  • Digital Marketing
  • Media Relations
  • Account Management


In addition to the professional development in our three practice areas, interns will also join account teams in a client-facing role, which provides valuable access to senior staff and clients. Interns will also take part in Forefront’s regular capital markets industry crash course: Let’s Talk Capital Markets. (Spoiler alert: There are games. And prizes.)


The internship will take place Monday – Thursday and would require a minimum of two days in the office (Wednesday and Thursday). Interns will be paid $20 an hour and work approximately 30 hours a week.


Forefront was named a 2021 Top Boutique PR Agency by Insider, and was one of six agencies named to Observer’s prestigious Financial PR Honor Roll, spotlighting the most influential firms serving the financial services industry. The New York-based publication noted that “the agency punches way above its weight,” helping it build an impressive roster of clients. Forefront campaigns have also been recognized by the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) and PRNEWS’ Platinum PR Awards.


Candidates may request in writing an accommodation due to a qualified disability, a sincerely held religious belief or another exemption required under applicable law.
