Fall 2018 Internships
Bluelight Strategies, a DC-based public affairs and media consulting firm, specializing in Jewish affairs, nonprofits, progressive domestic and foreign policy, and human rights, is currently seeking internship candidates.
The internship offers a significant opportunity to work closely with many progressive, nonprofit, Democratic Party and international organizations. Bluelight Strategies focuses on publicizing issues, advocating and planning events for clients with a wide range of issues from human rights and religious freedom to the Middle East peace process and U.S. Democratic Party politics.
Given the firm’s boutique feel and the diversity of its client base, interns will be exposed to a wide variety of projects in the marketing, advertising and particularly publicity and public relations fields 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 and current events is required. Other qualifications include strong administrative and organizational, communication, writing and editing, and internet research skills. Initiative, enthusiasm, a propensity for original thought, and a sense of humor are essential. The ideal candidates seek careers as political press aides, public relations executives, nonprofit communication professionals, ethnic communal professionals or reporters.

The internship position begins as soon as possible.
Applicants will be interviewed on a rolling basis as applications are reviewed.
Internships are paid and can be either part-time or full-time.
