The Harold Burson Summer Apprenticeship Program

Burson-Marsteller Miami is proud to offer apprenticeship opportunities throughout the year for undergraduate college students seeking to gain hands-on experience in the public relations and strategic communications field. This summer, we welcomed students from Florida International University, Boston College and Wake Forest University to work on client engagements and special projects, with our Burson talent across the network to apply their skills, bring unique perspectives and learn the Burson Way—all invaluable assets as they build their careers.

Our apprentices got a taste of Burson Miami, whether it was through monitoring media coverage and social conversations to gain insights on current brand perceptions for our clients, participating in creative brainstorming sessions for new business presentations, developing content for Burson Miami social media channels, or coordinating special events for clients and staff.

Studio B & Burson Latino Support ALPFA’s 44th Conference

Blog Collage

The Association of Latino Professionals For America’s (ALPFA) commissioned Studio B Live and Burson Latino, Burson-Marsteller’s Hispanic practice, to produce a series of videos for the organization’s 44th annual convention that brought together thousands of Latino students and professionals for learning,  leadership and networking opportunities in Dallas, TX.  Enjoy the videos the team produced for ALPFA 2016 honorees Blanca Blanco, John Ramirez, and Maity Interiano. In addition, StudioB Live produced the grand finale video that announced the location of the 45th convention, “The New Latino Paradigm”, taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada in 2017.

MDC Anniversary Recognition

Burson-Marsteller Miami continuously looks to establish positive and long lasting relationships within the South Florida community. This month, we celebrate a year-long partnership with the Miami- Dade Community College School of Entertainment and Design Technology (SEDT), created to give students studying digital/media production the opportunity to support our StudioB Live! Team, and gain hands on experience in their field.

Notable projects to  highlight include their role working side by side with our Burson Latino team at this year’s seventh-annual Hispanicize conference, the largest gathering for Latino trendsetters in marketing, digital content creation, journalism, entertainment and tech entrepreneurship, capturing footage, broadcasting the second-annual TECLA Awards live, and producing daily recap videos. Their expertise also proved to be an asset working with clients including FedEx, Oracle, and ALPFA, and producing compelling, storytelling content and videos for use during new business presentations.

We would like to officially welcome Anthony Fleites, an SEDT alumnus and an example of the talent we hope to discover, to the Burson-Marsteller Miami family! Anthony was instrumental in spearheading production elements on all projects through our partnership, and currently serves as StudioB Live! Production Coordinator.

We would like to thank the faculty and staff at SEDT for allowing us to tap into their network of talented, dedicated students and providing access to their state of the art tools and equipment. Here’s to growing our partnership in 2017 and beyond!
