Careers & Internships

A firm is only as good as the colleagues who do the work. They are the foundation — the engine that drives the mission. Our philosophy is simply this: To be really good at what you do, you have to love it. Love public relations? Love the power of insight and the value it can bring to any company or organization? Then, we want to talk to you.

Open full-time positions:

Obsidian is looking to add new members to our team! Currently, we’re seeking applications for:

Entry-level candidates

At Obsidian, entry-level employees typically work as account assistants – the foundation of our work. We expect account assistants to work diligently, think creatively and adapt quickly to a fast-paced working environment. When choosing an account assistant, we’re looking for someone:

  • Who recently graduated college with a degree in public relations (or the closest associated degree at your college or university)
  • With strong technical writing and communication skills
  • Who has a firm grasp on industry-related technologies
  • With a desire to learn and grow in all aspects of the PR profession
  • With a can-do attitude and a team-player mentality

If you think that’s you, send your resume, cover letter and writing samples to insight@obsidianpr.com.

Early-professional candidates

In addition to entry-level candidates, we’re looking for public relations professionals with two to five years of experience. These candidates will fill essential roles as both public relations tacticians and client liaisons. When choosing an early-professional candidate, we’re looking for someone:

  • With a degree in public relations (or the closest associated degree at your college or university)
  • With applicable public relations experience, especially those with PR agency or in-house experience (not individuals with marketing or advertising backgrounds)
  • With strong technical writing and communication skills
  • Who has a firm grasp on industry-related technologies
  • With experience in account management, client communication and copy editing
  • With a can-do attitude and a team-player mentality

If you think that’s you, send your resume, cover letter and writing samples to insight@obsidianpr.com.

Internships:

A solid internship is a gateway to a great PR career. These opportunities provide PR students with the chance to apply their knowledge and sharpen their skills.

Obsidian offers two levels of internships throughout the year.
  • Level I: This unpaid entry-level internship is for rising and current college juniors and seniors seeking a PR degree. Ideally, entry-level interns will work in a full-time capacity Monday through Friday, but arrangements can be made to accommodate class schedules.
  • Level 2: This is a paid, more advanced internship and is reserved for college graduates who already have a PR degree and who have interned at other agencies or in client environments. Interested candidates must be able to work in a full-time capacity.
Current Internship Openings:
  • We are currently accepting resumes for Level 1 interns for fall 2019.
  • We are currently accepting resumes for Level 2 interns for fall 2019.
