Intern - Quinn Thomas Public Affairs

Quinn Thomas Public Affairs

Are you motivated to work with smart, over-achievers who thrive in a team environment? Are

you a “get things done” kind of person? Do you make lists, organize constantly, and always

sweat the small details? Can you take direction from multiple people, and manage a variety of

tasks with little or no supervision? Do you welcome accountability and expect the same from

colleagues? Can you do all this with a smile on your face and a defiant “give me more!” look in

your eye? In short, do you like the deep end of the pool?

We do. And if you’ve answered “yes” to all of these questions, you need a place that matches

your skill set, personality, and ambition. Our culture demands an unmatched level of

professional service, creativity, intellectual curiosity, accountability and, of course, fun. In

return, you will work with a talented group of colleagues who will pledge a commitment to

those same values, enthusiastically push your professional development, and give you

opportunities to grow your role and network.

Quinn Thomas is a strategic communications firm that exists to galvanize public support of

clients, issues and causes. Our firm focuses on a combination of public relations, public affairs,

and communications across the retail, technology, healthcare, energy, education, transportation,
