Media Strategy & Event Planning Firm Seeking Summer 2012 Intern!

MEDIA STRATEGY AND EVENT PLANNING FIRM SEEKS INTERN FOR SUMMER 2012 Paid Internship. Deadline to Apply is April 6, 2012

Rabinowitz/Dorf Communications, a Washington D.C. media consulting and public affairs firm, specializing in political non-profits, progressive foreign policy, and religious and ethnic affairs is looking for part/full-time interns for the summer.

The internship offers a great opportunity to work closely with many progressive, non-profit, religious, Democratic and international organizations. Rabinowitz/Dorf Communications is a unique firm that focuses on publicizing issues and planning events for clients with a wide range of issues as disparate as religious freedom, democracy building, women’s health, academic research and the environment, and from the Middle East peace process to Democratic Party politics. Given the relatively small size of the firm and the diversity of its client base, interns will be exposed to a broad range of projects in the publicity and public relations fields and will be actively engaged in their implementation. Interns will cultivate a working knowledge of the Washington and national political scenes, the pro-Israel and American Jewish communities and – not least of all – the media.

*Only current undergraduate college students will be considered, no recent graduates or grad students*

Intern applicants must possess strong written and verbal communications skills, with a particular sensitivity to political nuance. A working knowledge of current international and domestic politics is required. Other qualifications include strong administrative, communication, and research skills. Initiative, enthusiasm, a propensity for original thought and a sense of humor are essential. Organizational skills are admired. The ideal candidates seek careers as political press aides, public relations executives, journalists or non-profit communication professionals.

This paid internship begins at the end of the spring semester in May and goes through August. Please e-mail your resume, cover letter, and references to Meredith MacKenzie at Meredith@rabinowitz-dorf.com.
