Social Media / Graphics / Photo / Video Internships!

Elisco’s Creative Café is on the lookout for students or recent grads eager to earn experience at an ad agency. Applicants should be right at home multi-tasking on projects, taking-charge of tasks and paying attention to the details. Interns will be focusing on Elisco as their main client, as well as assisting on select client projects as needed. Over the years, some of the agency’s best interns have been offered full-time positions at the agency or joined our network of freelancers.

The internship will run from Monday, June 3rd to Friday, August 9th and is typically two or three days a week. Time frames are flexible and tailored to the student’s schedule. Internships are for college credit. The following roles are available:


The design intern must have a solid foundation in Adobe programs, layout and typography. They’ll assist the creative team, as well as work closely with the copywriting/social media intern. They’ll be designing and concepting for digital and print projects.


The copywriting/social media intern should be confident in their writing abilities and familiar with social channels. They’ll work with both the creative and account teams to develop concepts and copy for a variety of projects, pitch in managing Elisco social accounts, proofread client work and write blog posts.


The photo/video intern must have basic technical skills in this area. They’ll work with the creative and production teams assisting on set at client photo and video shoots, working in post and creating content for the Elisco brand.


1. Send your resume and portfolio link or relevant work samples to Laura Shirley: Please note which role you are applying to and how you heard about this internship. The deadline to apply is March 1st.

2. Go the extra mile. Step 1 is the ingredients, but what’s the recipe? You’re applying to a creative café after all. Show us how much you want this, what you’re all about or impress us some other way. How you accomplish this is entirely up to you.



Laura is a graduate of California University of Pennsylvania where she earned a B.S. in Graphic Design. At Elisco, she creates content for clients like Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership, Clearview Federal Credit Union and Community LIFE. Laura is also a member and volunteer throughout the Pittsburgh design community at organizations such as CreativeMornings, AIGA and Ad2.

Mandatory CCPD Meeting Update (Winter COMM 395 Only)

The information session for 2:30pm today, January 31, will resume as planned. The Center for Career and Professional Development asks that students only attend if they can safely make it to campus. Their final information session will be tomorrow, February 1, at 1:30pm. Both information sessions will occur in Pratt Hall 305.

Dr. Lenze strongly urges his students who still need to attend the session to do so TOMORROW! Please do not go today! It is too dangerous to be outside.


Thank you,

Winter COMM 395 Announcement

Hi, all –


To accommodate for today’s information session cancellation, we will be offering two more information sessions this week:



I will post a D2L announcement for students, but I would also ask if you could please relay this information to your respective classes to ensure they are aware of the additions. If students are unable to attend the sessions, I am still planning to upload the recorded presentation to D2L once the sessions have concluded, so they will have the opportunity to hear the same information.


Thank you!
