The Intern Experience at 10Fold

Far from just a lame B – Lister movie trying to prove that Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson are still relevant and it’s these crazy millennials that are the ones out of touch with reality, internships are actually a critical step to success in the PR.

Unfortunately, internships have kind of a bad rap. Think cliché intern and what comes to mind? Coffee? Menial grunt work? Free labor? All too often that’s exactly the case.

But not all internships are created equal. At 10Fold, we pride ourselves on our internships and really believe our program to be a cut above the rest.

So what exactly sets an internship at 10Fold apart?

It’s paid. Always.

No not in experience, or possible college credit, but in cold hard bimonthly direct deposits. Because 10Fold understands you can’t pay your landlord with a glowing letter of recommendation.

You get real world experience.

We don’t bring in interns to be coffee fetchers or kitchen cleaners; if that’s all we thought you could do we wouldn’t want to hire you in the first place. Our interns are paired directly with a senior staff member on day one and immediately get started on real work. Bad news for aspiring pencil pushers, but great news for those driven to succeed.

You’re part of the team.

Interns aren’t some expendable resource that we renew every couple of months. At 10Fold we really believe that everyone we hire is becoming part of our team and we treat them accordingly; no intern coordinator that buffers the interns from the rest of the company, no exclusive training sessions for full time hires only, no battle royal where we pit all the interns against each other in gladiatorial combat to see who among them will earn the full time position (although we can all agree that would be the best way by far).

We care about our employees, and we celebrate when our interns are successful. Literally. Every Friday, in a meeting with everyone in the company from the CEO down, we make sure to let everyone know exactly how well our interns are doing. Sometimes we even do a little cheer.

Maybe that’s why we end up hiring 70% of the interns we employ.

But hey this could all just be some corporate sales pitch right? Well listen to what intern Nathan Zaragosa has to say about his time at 10Fold:

“I personally wanted to really grow from my internship, and gain skills I didn’t have before. From the moment I came into 10Fold, I’ve been assigned real projects that make impacts such as client social media content creation, event and award searches and outreach, and most recently pitching reporters. 10Fold went as far to ask the intern team to come up with ideas to improve training in the intern program! These projects not only help you grow your skillset, but make you feel like you’re making a difference in the company.”

Howdy ya’ll! Greetings From Austin, Texas…

What are we doing in the Lone Star State, you ask? Well, we’re excited to officially announce the opening of our newest 10Fold office! That’s right, we’ve expanded our footprint (or cowboy boot print, we should say) beyond California to Austin, where you can find us located in the heart of downtown at the corner of 6th Street and Congress Avenue, just steps from the Texas State Capitol (map here).

There are many things that attracted us to Austin, primarily the booming local tech scene, coupled with an extremely talented pool of PR professionals. Oh, and of course the amazing BBQ, craft beers, incredible live music, endless sunshine, beautiful Texas wildflowers, etc. are all added bonuses!

We invite you to keep an eye on our blog, as our Austin team will be sharing updates regularly on the agency’s growth, local market trends, the latest hotspots, etc.

We could not be more enthused about the prospect of Austin. If you’re a University of Texas student looking for a summer or fall internship, a PR practicioner exploring your next career opportunity, or an emerging technology company in need of PR and marketing services, we’d love to have a conversation!

Feel free to reach out to us by visting our contact us page.
