CLS Strategies, a Washington, D.C.-based strategic communications firm, is currently seeking interns for its Spring 2021 class.
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.
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.
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 early January to mid-May, with at least a portion remote. Please indicate in your cover letter whether you are applying for a full time (40 hours/week) or part-time (25 hours/week) internship, as well as your expected location for the duration of the internship.
Interested applicants should e-mail a PDF copy of their resume and cover letter to internships@CLSstrategies.com with the subject header “Spring 2021 Intern Application.” Please be sure to include your name in the file names.
