Internship Opportunity – Butter PR

9 Mar

A unique PR internship opportunity has come up and I had to share it with everyone! I was forwarded this email by Magnet Creative and figured it would be a great opportunity to get a different aspect of the PR industry than what we are regularly used to, the food industry. Good Luck!

With Love,
