Paid Strategic Communications Internship

CLS Strategies, a mid-sized Washington, D.C.-based strategic communications firm, is currently seeking interns for spring 2017 (January – May). 

CLS Strategies serves a range of clients – including Fortune 100 corporations, high-profile individuals, foreign governments, international organizations, trade associations and non-profits. Some need to protect their reputations from intense threats. Others are trying to shape new laws. All are looking for creative, outside-the-box solutions that bring together politics, public policy and media/communications.
Description
Interns are an integral part of CLS Strategies. They monitor the media for breaking news and relevant commentary, research public policy issues, attend briefings on the Hill and at local think tanks, plan and execute events, provide administrative support and assist with strategic thinking for a broad range of domestic and international clients. The small size of our firm allows interns to work closely with senior staff members and provides opportunities for substantive work.
Qualifications
Candidates must be able to juggle a range of tasks and work well under pressure. Previous office environment experience and a major in communications, public relations, journalism or political science is preferred, but not required. Foreign language proficiency, especially in Spanish, and social media expertise are pluses.

This is a paid internship to begin in January. Start and end dates are negotiable. Please indicate in your cover letter whether you are applying for a full time (5 days/week) or part-time (3 days/week) internship.           

Applications accepted until November 1, 2016.
