Entry-Level Communications Role, Platts/The McGraw-Hill Companies,
New York, N.Y.
Platts, a leading global provider of energy, petrochemicals and metals information, is seeking a summer intern to fulfill diverse internal and external communications responsibilities. The ideal candidate will be a PR or journalism graduate with top-notch writing skills and extreme attention to detail who wants to move into a permanent communications position.

Candidates must have college or internship experience in journalism or PR. Strong writing, organizational and grammatical/proofreading skills are absolute requirements. Experience with Vocus, Factiva, web content
management systems, social media programs, and applications such as Dreamweaver and Photoshop are a huge plus; so is knowledge of HTML.
