Workplace Fairness seeks undergraduate and graduate students on a year-round, rolling basis for communications internships. Interns will work closely with the Senior Advisor and Executive Director, and will be integrally involved in the development and implementation of communications plans and advocacy campaigns, as well as assisting with message development, press releases, e-newsletters, website and blog content, and media relations.
Interns must have excellent writing and editing skills. We are interested in working with students who are self-motivated, focused, Web-savvy, and strongly interested in protecting the rights of workers. For communications students who wish to combine traditional media with digital strategy, projects from our Digital Strategy Intern may be combined to provide a range of experience.
Interns may work full or part-time. This internship pays $15 per hour. Students can arrange to receive course credit but should determine whether their particular institution permits course credit for paid internships or not. Internships may be unpaid if it is required to receive course credit and the student makes this request. Our organization is headquartered in Silver Spring, MD (Washington, DC metro area); however, interns can work remotely from any location, and will be supervised by the Senior Advisor, an attorney. Students whose job options are geographically limited or who prefer to telecommute may find the flexibility of this type of internship ideal.
