By Think HQ Intern Jacinta Leppik.
Choosing an organisation to complete an internship with is a big decision, I see my first internship as the starting point of my public relations journey. I was looking for an organisation that allowed me to gain practical experience working on projects I am passionate about. Think HQ’s internship program stood out as they offer an opportunity to research a line of enquiry and create content while working with organisations that have a positive social impact.
On my first day, the whole team made me feel welcome, and the new workplace nerves quickly subsided. During my placement so far at Think HQ I have been developing copy, scheduling social media content and preparing media lists. I am using the skills I have acquired during my studies and learning to use specialist programs that are essential in the public relations industry.

What is Lumin?
The recently launched Lumin is an online learning platform for the development of marketing, social media and communications skills.
Created by communications agency Think HQ, Lumin is designed specifically for the social change and community sectors.
Founder of Lumin and Think HQ, Jen Sharpe created the platform to empower and educate organisations in their communications efforts.

Video courses with Think HQ experts educate Lumin members on the basics of setting up a Facebook page, writing a media release, pitching to the press and more.

2017 has been a year of significant growth, work and achievement.
We were recognised as Medium Consultancy of the Year and awarded Health Campaign of the Year (DonateLife Week) at the 2017 Victorian Public Relations Institute of Australia (PRIA) Golden Target Awards. We were then highly commended at the 2017 PRIA National Golden Target Awards.
Judged by our peers in the Public Relations industry, this recognition is reaffirming of the quality of work we produce and the skill of our team. This also followed recognition as finalists in the 2017 Mumbrella Comms Con Awards for Best Government Relations Campaign.
I’m proud of the passionate and proactive team I have, and it’s cause to reflect upon the impact our work has had. I founded Think HQ to create smart communications for projects that matter – and to think that 42,000 people joined the Australian Organ Donor Register during our 2016 campaign is remarkable. Each of those people could one day save or transform...Read More
