Jordyn Kafka, Communications Intern
Overall, I had an amazing experience interning at PIRC. As the PIRC Communications Intern, I learned valuable skills which I know will help me down my career path.
These skills include creating social media posts targeted to specific audiences, learning how to use Hootsuite to schedule social media posts, using Canva to create graphics for posts, and learning how to caluclate social media metrics like post engagment and reach.
I also had the opportunity to improve my skills in public speaking through UsafeUS tabling events, and learned how to better manage my time and prioritize my work.

Meghan Stewart, Communications Intern
The time I spent as a Communications Intern at PIRC was truly invaluable. From posting daily social media to collaborating with campus leaders fighting against sexualized violence, I was able to use my own unique voice to spread the mission of PIRC. The skills I gained writing, graphic design, and program support will take me far in my career and I have my experiences at PIRC to thank for that.
