West End Strategy Team is currently accepting applications for paid full-time internship positions for the summer of 2020.* We are a full-service strategic communications firm, 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 a full-time schedule, Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. - 6 p.m., in the Washington, D.C. office from May through August 2020.* Each application must include the following: resume, cover letter and writing sample. Only complete applications will be considered. No phone calls, please.

West End Strategy Team is an equal opportunity employer and strongly encourages applications from people of color, persons with disabilities, women, and LGBT applicants.

* While this internship is intended to be located in our Washington, DC office, if the ongoing coronavirus outbreak makes that impossible, WEST will offer options for interns to work remotely during the summer semester to ensure the safety of our staff and interns. All interviews will be conducted remotely.
