Mitchell is an award-winning PR firm creating real connections between people, businesses, and brands. We provide strategic insights, customized conversations, and consumer engagement solutions that make real impact.

For the 7th year, Mitchell is offering an all-expense paid immersion into the Mitchell agency experience. We call it BIG BREAK: DISCOVERING DIVERSE TALENT. The Big Break program allows you to learn from agency leaders while building your resume and collaborating with students from across the country on a project for a non-profit client. If you’re a senior studying public relations we want to hear from you!


Tell us how being part of Big Break ’17 will be a “Big Break” for you by:

Option 1: Post on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, or Tumblr. Be sure to include #MitchellBigBreak on your post and have your social media profile set to public.


Option 2: Highlighting your fantastic writing skills by submitting a 500 word essay.

With either option, you will need to upload a copy of your resume as well as a letter of recommendation from a professor, administrator, employer, or other mentor.

All information must be submitted by December 9, 2016 at midnight to be considered for Big Break ‘17.

Selected students will be notified by January 9, 2017 and must be available to participate during the entire length of the program from March 12-17, 2017 at our Fayetteville, AR office location.


Engage with us and have your questions answered on Tuesday, November 29, 2016 during a live Twitter chat with our President, Sarah Clark, and our Vice President of Human Resources, Sheerah Davis, from 4-5 PM Central. Just follow #MitchellBigBreak to join in!

Big Break is hosted at Mitchell’s Fayetteville, Arkansas location. The office is located in downtown Fayetteville – 30 miles south of the world’s largest retailer, home to the University of Arkansas, and deep in the heart of the Ozark Mountains. Fayetteville’s culture is a combination of Southern city, college town, and an emerging startup scene. One stroll around the downtown square or a Saturday morning spent in the shops on Block Street and you’ll know why locals proudly say they “Keep Fayetteville Funky.”

Big Breakers will stay within walking distance of Mitchell offices at the Chancellor Hotel on the downtown square. The music, food, and culture of Fayetteville’s Dickson Street is also accessible by foot or Uber.
