2023 Barkin McKeithan Scholarship Program Application
At Mueller Communications, we work behind the scenes to bring our clients’ stories to the forefront and use communications tools to solve complex problems.

Now, we want to know the scoop on you.

Mueller Communications is searching for its next rockstar summer intern. If you’re reading this post, you’ve just uncovered an amazing opportunity to receive a $2,000 scholarship and a full-time paid internship in our stunning new home inside the Milwaukee Fortress Building. Even better? You won’t spend your days here organizing files or fetching coffee. You’ll gain real-world experience to help you accelerate to the next phase of your career.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?

Mueller Communications is a full-service communications and marketing agency located in Milwaukee. We work across the entire communications spectrum, so whether an organization has good news to promote or a challenging situation to manage, our team of experts can develop a solution to meet their needs. We provide a diverse set of services and have an equally diverse client roster of organizations of all sizes, across all industries — all with a shared connection to or love of our community and our state.
With Mueller, you’ll get the opportunity to work with some of the region’s most influential players, from national healthcare organizations and retailers, to beloved cultural institutions and community organizations — and everything in between. In a single week, you might draft a press release, attend a news conference, build a marketing campaign, write ad copy, or help out with a video shoot. Two days are never the same. We take pride in the great work that we do, but we’re even more proud working in this city knowing we’ve made a real impact. We know you will, too.

You might be wondering: How does this internship work in today’s hybrid world of virtual and in-person work? Like any good communications professional, we ask you to be flexible and comfortable with a little bit of uncertainly as we continue to navigate the ever-changing health and safety landscape, while always doing what’s best for our team and clients. We continue to offer flexibility as a key pillar of our internship program, so we’re looking for a self-starter who isn’t intimidated by making the most of a hybrid virtual/in-person environment.

WANT TO JOIN US?

We aren’t shy about loving our hometown of Milwaukee. But we agree with most, that we need to be better ambassadors for our city.  We need to lead with what we love, instead of justify the bad weather. We need to better articulate why we choose to make Milwaukee home and why we think others should do so too.
