Workplace Fairness seeks undergraduate and graduate students on a year-round, rolling basis for digital strategy internships. Interns will work closely with the Senior Advisor and Executive Director, and will be integrally involved in conceiving, developing, and implementing innovative online social media campaigns around the organization's web content and/or product offerings. Interns will also develop methods for constituent engagement in conjunction with the organization's branding, PR, and fundraising objectives, and assist in curating and/or writing action alerts, e-newsletters, blogs, special reports, and web content.
Interns must have excellent writing and editing skills, and generally be comfortable with online research and social media networks including Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. Coding expertise is not required, although some experience using a content management system and/or basic HTML would be helpful. The ideal candidate would have experience using graphics and photo-editing tools and/or online organizing experience. We are interested in working with students who are self-motivated, focused, and creative, and strongly interested in protecting the rights of workers. For communications students who wish to combine digital strategy with traditional media, projects from our Communications Internship 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.
