Beyond the Internship

We’re thrilled to have two former interns as current staff members, while countless others who began their careers in our internship program are now working at some of the largest agencies in the industry, including Fleishman Hillard and Ketchum.  Others have landed terrific jobs putting their communications skills to work in the corporate, public and non-profit sectors. While many settled here in the St. Louis area, alums of The Hauser Group internship program can also be found in New York, Chicago, Atlanta and San Francisco. We encourage interested candidates to check out the comments from a few former interns who’ve taken the time to share their thoughts on our program and how it has helped to prepare them for a career in the public relations field.
