Sep 26, 2017

West End Strategy Team is currently accepting applications for paid internship positions for the Spring of 2018. We are a full-service strategic communications firm with offices in D.C. and New York, offering clients a comprehensive approach that includes message development, media relations, online strategy, marketing and crisis communications. Our team works with organizations seeking to enhance their influence on issues including social and economic justice, human rights, civil rights, faith-based advocacy and sustainability. What drives us is the fact that our work touches the lives of real people – women and children, racial and religious minorities, people affected by gun violence, immigrants, working families and so many others.

Interns have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience working closely with progressive, nonprofit, and international organizations in a professional setting. Responsibilities include writing and editing materials for distribution to the media, drafting opinion pieces, developing social media content, researching client organizations and their issue areas, researching target journalists and compiling media lists, conducting media outreach, aggregating news content, and various clerical duties. Through this experience, interns will cultivate a working knowledge of highly relevant political and advocacy organizations, the major issues of the day, and the media.

Interns are required to commit to at least 20 hours/week, or 2-3 full days in the office from January 8 – May 25.

Please email a resume, cover letter, brief writing sample and list of 2-3 references to internship@westendstrategy.com. Only complete applications will be considered. No phone calls, please.
