PRLab is proud to have worked with a variety of clients including:
AcceptU, Audrey’s Rescue Angels, Ben & Jerry’s, Boston Athletic Association, Boston University Police Department, Children’s Hospital Boston, Goodwill Industries, Restoration Resources, Wild Idea Buffalo and many more. Some clients vary from semester to semester, while others have worked with PRLab for more than a decade.
Working with our clients:
Before beginning the semester, prospective clients are required to submit their PR needs and objectives to PRLab for review. Once accepted as a client, the PRLab board assigns one supervisor and two or three account executives to work as a team with the client. The account executives then collaborate to accomplish the client’s PR goals.
PRLab runs on a 10-week basis during the fall and spring semesters (please refer to BU academic calendar), from late September to early December and from early February to late April, respectively.
Account executives can work both on-site in the client’s office and off-site in the PRLab. Students will receive two or four credits for this class, meaning they will work 8.5 or 14 hours per week, respectively, on the client’s account. Clients are required to submit an evaluation form of each account executive at the end of the semester. Client evaluations will be provided to you by the PRLab president in advance.
Clients must pay a $250 fee is required at the beginning of each semester. For more information, visit the Fee page.
Account supervisors and account executives work closely with the clients not as interns, but as an actual PR team. If clients’ needs are more suitable for the internship program, PRLab will be happy to redirect them to the College of Communication’s Career Services Center or Public Relations Professor Quigley’s PR internship program.
