How to write your own Communications Intern resume?

1. Find a way to make yourself noticed 

Since interns are usually people who have all recently finished schools, it is likely that the crowd with which you will be applying for the position come ‘from the same mold’, as they say. 

It would be beneficial for you to have something that could make you stand out (in a positive way, of course). If you had gone to an especially prestigious educational institution, had gotten awards or achieved noteworthy achievements either during your studies or in your early career, be sure to include it in your resume. You could dedicate it an entirely separate space or include it within your education or work experience sections.

Communications Intern Resume Awards Example

  • "Irma A. Jones Endowed Student Resource Award / Duquesne University (01/2019)"

2. Outline some kind of background in the field

This is really a given with any kind of resume, but it is something that can help significantly if you are applying to be an intern. Young people who have already managed to have some sort of workplace experience are thought of as extremely motivated and somewhat used to professional life.

If you can, make sure that you list what exactly you did in a position that at least resembles a proper work environment. It will definitely show recruiters that you will not have to overcome a steep learning curve during your first couple of days working. It really sets yourself and them for a win-win situation, should they hire you.

Communications Intern Resume Work Experience Example

Outreach Intern / Pittsburgh Community Reinvestment Group (08/2018 – 05/2019)

  • "Drafted and published weekly “e-blasts” for Rail-Volution! transit conference & PCRG’s Annual Community Development Summit."

  • "Recruited and managed 100+ volunteers for Rail-Vollution! Conference as part of a 6-person team."

3. Describe what you do outside of work that could be relevant for the job

Areas like communication require people to be in touch with the ongoing trends around them, in society, so that they are able to engage with people of all walks of life. Those skills are not, however, only practiced in the workplace. The best communications, marketing, and sales employees are ones who follow all of this in their spare time as well.

You could try to indicate that you do as well by giving more of a personal description of your background, not just via the professional aspect. Once again, this is something that can significantly help with becoming noticed by the people reviewing applications for the position.
