CLS Strategies is Hiring Spring 2022 Interns
CLS Strategies, a Washington, D.C.-based strategic communications firm, is currently seeking interns for its Spring 2022 class.
CLS Strategies serves a range of clients – including Fortune 100 corporations, 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, monitor briefings on the Hill and at local think tanks, plan and execute events, track developments in major legal cases, 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, social media expertise, or a background in legal issues are pluses.
This is a paid internship to begin in early January and end in late May. Please indicate in your cover letter whether you are applying for a full time (40 hours/week) or part-time (minimum of 30 hours/week) internship, as well as your expected location and whether you are authorized to work in the U.S. for the entire duration of the internship.
Interested applicants should email a PDF copy of their resume and cover letter to internships@CLSstrategies.com with the subject header “Spring 2022 Intern Application.” Please be sure to include your name in the file names.
