Paid Remote Summer Internship with DC Public Relations Firm West End Strategy Team


West End Strategy Team is currently accepting applications for paid remote internship positions for the summer 2021 semester. We welcome students from diverse backgrounds to apply and strongly encourage applications from people of color, persons with disabilities, women and LGBTQ candidates.


We are a full-service strategic communications firm working in D.C., New York and Chicago, offering clients a comprehensive approach that includes message development, media relations, online strategy, marketing and crisis communications. 


Given the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, this internship is being offered remotely. Interns will join the team virtually during normal work hours and will collaborate with staff over the phone and via video calls. If and when conditions improve, we can revisit the possibility of returning to an in-office internship. The safety of our staff and interns will remain our number one priority and guide all decisions.


WEST 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.


Our summer internship is full-time Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. ET. Interns will work virtually from home, from late May through August 2021. Each application must include the following: resume, cover letter and writing sample. Please upload your cover letter and writing sample as one document.
