What makes Ketchum different from other Fellows Programs?

Our Fellows Program will allow you to experience the PR profession firsthand. For 9 weeks, you will be a part of a Ketchum account team — serving your clients and agency, billing time, and working hard. Our program is filled with many networking and training opportunities, too.

What kind of work will I be doing?

Fellows work daily with clients and account team members. A Fellows day may consist of attending client and team meetings, participating in agency events, writing client and team materials, assisting with research for new business opportunities and client presentations, participating in brainstorms and assisting with event coordination.
