The PRIME Factory

On Wednesday, June 1, The PRIME Factory welcomed their 2016 Summer Interns.  This summer will be The PRIME Factory’s first semester utilizing interns. Each intern was selected based on criteria including motivation and drive, creativity, personality, commitment and overall understanding of the marketing and communications industry. The PRIME Factory looks forward to having young, innovative, and inspired students in the office this summer while the agency continues to grow their business, provide top-level service to their clients and, now, teach a new generation of passionate students the ends-and-outs of marketing, digital media and public relations.

Our three interns are all students at Virginia Tech. More specifically, each intern represents the Virginia Tech College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences in the public relations program. These interns represent the Class of 2017 and Class of 2018, with each having a different background in the industry thus far.
