Barkin McKeithan Scholarship.


Mueller Communications, a well-established and highly regarded communications and marketing firm, is looking to meet experienced senior level candidates to add to its talented team of professionals. This position offers a unique opportunity to develop strategy and manage teams to execute, participate in new business development efforts, and counsel clients through communications challenges from crises to product launches to awareness-building campaigns. 

Mueller Communications’ clients have high expectations and we are looking for another A-player to join us in exceeding those expectations. We take a collaborative problem-solving approach and this position is ideal for someone who enjoys being part of and leading close-knit teams and is looking to grow themselves and others through mentorship and challenging client work.


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 uncertainty 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.
