Big Break

In less than five days, four interns made one impressive impact on Mitchell Communications Group. It was all part of Big Break, Discovering Diverse Talent, which is our annual internship program. This year marks the fifth occasion of the program, and once again, we had a group of talented students step up to the challenge for this week-long immersion in public relations. 

Big Break was designed as a way for Mitchell to help advance the profession of public relations, as well as recruit diverse talent for the agency and industry. It has become a valuable program that we’re proud to offer students each year.

We were honored to have the following students participate as the Class of 2015, and we’d like to share a few of their experiences from the week:

Nonverbal cues that we send through our digital assets are as important, if not more important than our written content. When creating a website or piece of digital marketing material, we usually think about what we want to say, but we need to put just as much attention to how we are saying it through the nonverbal components.

In the workshop Digital Body Language, we examined how online users decide within the first seconds if they like, trust and want to buy from you. Digital assets that make up your first […]
