Media strategy and event planning firm seeks Fall 2012 Intern
Rabinowitz/Dorf Communications, a Washington, D.C. media consulting and public affairs firm, specializing in political non-profits, progressive foreign policy, Jewish and ethnic affairs, and academic research is seeking internship candidate applications for the fall semester.
The internship offers a great opportunity to work closely with many progressive, non-profit, ethnic, Democratic and international organizations. Rabinowitz/Dorf Communications is a unique firm that focuses on publicizing issues and planning events for clients with a wide range of issues as disparate as human rights, religious freedom, democracy building, women’s health, academic research and the environment, and from the Middle East peace process to domestic American Democratic Party politics.
Given the relatively small size of the firm and the diversity of its client base, interns will be exposed to a broad range of projects in the publicity and public relations field and will be actively engaged in their implementation. Interns will cultivate a working knowledge of the Washington and national political scenes, the pro-Israel and American Jewish communities and – not least of all – the media.
Intern applicants must possess strong written and verbal communications skills with a particular sensitivity to political nuance. A working knowledge of current international and domestic politics is required. Other qualifications include strong administrative, communication, writing and editing, and Internet research skills. Initiative, enthusiasm, a propensity for original thought, organizational skills, and a sense of humor are also essential. The ideal candidates seek careers as political press aides, public relations executives, journalists or non-profit communication professionals.
This paid internship begins at the start of the fall semester. Please e-mail your resume, cover letter, and references to Samantha Friedman at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for application submission is Monday, May 21. No phone calls, please.
