    I worked at Fingerprint Communications as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    -Working with fashion/beauty clients
    -Attending client events
    -Friendly people
    -Client samples

    Cons

    -No structure
    -Way too many interns for such a small office
    -Not much hands on work with pitching and writing
    -Not much communication with senior level staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of hiring 10 interns, hire about 3 and form a structured program. Hold weekly seminars and meetings on different topics related to the PR industry so the interns can actually learn something besides running errands and scanning magazines.

    I have been working at Fingerprint Communications as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    - You can work with fashion, hospitality and/or consumer goods
    - The staff is understanding and nice
    - You can get a lot of free things
    - It's not a bad place to have a first internship and still discovering what you want in your field

    Cons

    - Not enough work
    - Too many interns
    - Not an internship program/system
    - No pay
    - Disconnect between workers and interns

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider making an internship program instead of just simply hiring interns. Have one person oversee them, and do not hire more than 5. Meet with the interns once a week to talk about goals and projects for the upcoming week. Try communicating and connecting more with interns. Offer writing them letters of rec before they leave, and possibly go over potential portfolio pieces that have worked on.

    I worked at Fingerprint Communications as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Free clothes
    Relaxed environment
    If you think you want to go into Fashion PR- this is a great place to witness the ins and outs. You might not get hands on experience but you'll know if it's for you.

    Cons

    Small office
    Lots of Fedex and Duane Reade trips
    Continuous clothes returns and cleaning the showroom
    They won't give you PR work unless you ask(Press releases,Media alerts, etc)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have an intern program in-place instead of figuring out things for the intern to do o the spot. Also ire more than one intern for each day.

    I worked at Fingerprint Communications

    Pros

    The workplace was very small and the atmosphere was really casual, which made getting to know the senior management easy. They were really open to teaching you about the industry if you asked.

    Cons

    Unless you made yourself known, they could be bad at times about giving interns enough challenging work. They often got so busy (because there were so few of them) that they forgot the interns were there to help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a more structured internship program, give interns weekly or long term assignments and projects so that they always have something to work on.
