Every public relations student hopes to one day have the perfect internship. If you could create a “dream internship,” what would it look like? Where would you go? Which company would you work for? What would your responsibilities be?
My dream internship would be to work PR for the Cannes Film Festival. The Cannes Film Festival is held every year in the south of France and is one of the most important events for the international film community. The publicity and hype surrounding the event is immense. I would want to work during the actual festival, held every year in May. I would love to organize press junkets for specific films opening. The most fun would be to organize publicity for the opening film. The opening film is usually picked because it has that something extra which gets people more excited than usual. To work the red carpet for that would be a dream come true. Certain journalists and/or media people are picked for prime positions on the carpet so they can snag a star to interview. I would love nothing more than bossing those people around.
