PostHeaderIcon Internship interview need to bring press release but I’ve never written one?

Question by CYE: Internship interview need to bring press release but I’ve never written one?
I have an interview tomorrow for a marketing and promotions internship this summer, and it sounds amazing. The information about the internship before I applied wasn’t very detailed, but my major is marketing so I’m pretty sure I’m qualified. but they told me to bring a “writing sample (ie press release)” and I’ve never written a press release or even taken a public relations class.
My friend has written one before and I’m looking up how to write one so I can just make one although I’m not sure what to make it on haha.
anyway I’m wondering is it ok if I just make one up, and what should I say about never learning it?

Best answer:

Answer by MacKenzie
As a marketing major myself, I would recommend doing one on a topic in our industry. Perhaps one of the new social media platforms? Such as Pinterest, Digg, Reddit, etc. I would cover all aspect of it, particularly how that social media could benefit a business. Remember though, a press release is a story of a new event/product/thing not an article… Make sure and make it interesting.
