As one of the largest independent PR firms in the U.S., Prosek Partners takes an "unboxed" approach to promoting, protecting and enhancing our clients' brands. We specialize in providing a full range of communications solutions to financial and professional services companies, and clients turn to us for our fresh and creative strategies.

At Prosek Partners, the stories we tell impact the global economy.

Whether you're developing a pitch, crafting a social media plan or working on tomorrow's headline news, no two days are alike. If you like to be in the center of the action, Prosek's PR Development Program might be right for you.

Prosek's four-month PR Development Program is designed to train the next generation of PR agency professionals. Our approach emphasizes real-world work amid a backdrop of continuous learning and mentorship.

Program Overview and Responsibilities

Professional Development and Training
Prosek's Boot Camp program is a curriculum curated - and taught by - top leaders across the firm on a weekly basis throughout the program. This professional development program is specifically designed to give Prosek Apprentices training that they can apply to their day-to-day work.

Internal Network and Support
We invest heavily into the growth and support for our Prosek Apprentices, pairing each Apprentice with a manager, a media buddy and a mentor.

  • Media buddies help Apprentices navigate the financial media landscape and develop their media relations skills.
