We make sure our interns get the hands-on experience that will set them apart from other job seekers when they enter the "real world" (a few Tricom interns even have been hired full time after graduation!). We encourage college juniors and seniors to apply, and our internships are available each semester, including the summer. Many interns use the Washington Center to receive college credits during their time in Washington, D.C.
Our interns maintain a Twitter feed during their time with us; be sure to follow them at @TricomU to see what they're doing and what's happening at our firm.
Here is what past interns have said about their time with us:
"My time at Tricom Associates was truly rewarding. It was an honor learning from people who have such a passion for this field. I am grateful for the semester I spent there and all of the knowledge I obtained in the process. I have never been so confident in myself and my abilities and I owe that all to Tricom. This company holds a special place in my heart and I feel exceptionally lucky to have had the opportunity to intern there!"
--Nikki, Summer 2015
"At Tricom, you will learn more far more than any of your peers. You will acquire infinite times more skills than answering phone calls, making copies and getting coffee. Actually, you'll never have to make anyone coffee."
--Erin, Spring 2015
"Through this internship, I've learned more than I ever imagined about public relations and strategic campaigns, and now I feel confident about my career path...interning at Tricom has been one of the biggest blessings of my life."
--Kaitlyn, Summer 2014
"I started at Tricom with PR classes, a porfolio and a PR thesis in my back pocket. I knew I had a lot to learn, but I didn't expect my entire perception of PR to change. You'll learn 10 times more here than you do in the classroom."
--Erin, Spring 2014
"[I know I made] the right choice by interning for Tricom. It is a great place to work and you will leave knowing so much about PR and communications that a textbook could not teach you."
--Caitlin, Spring 2014
"Don't worry if you do not know much about public relations. Neither did I. Interning at Tricom has been an incredible experience. It's where I wrote my first press release, saw one of my articles actually get published, and tweeted so much I can think in 140 characters or less."
--Caroline, Summer 2013
