The Dershowitz Group accepts four interns three times per year (January—May, May—August, September—December). Undergraduates, recent graduates and graduate students with an interest in international affairs, security issues or energy security are encouraged to apply.
Interns may be asked to develop databases of influencers for relevant policy areas, draft business letters, talking points and FAQ sheets, and prepare client materials. Interns are frequently asked to take ownership of their projects and are given additional responsibilities based upon their professionalism and level of productivity.
The ideal candidate will demonstrate a knack for research, excellent time management skills and meticulous attention to detail. They will follow instructions in a precise manner, work in a fast-paced professional environment and learn from a constructive work environment.
Interns will have the opportunity to work closely with senior staff with expertise in foreign policy, media relations, and journalism. Mentorship is an important part of this program. Brown-bag lunch seminars with clients and other persons of interests occur regularly for the benefit of each intern class. Learn more about our Intern Speaker Series.
Interns will interact with clients. Strong writing and oral skills are required. A strong understanding of government, contemporary issues in foreign affairs, and journalism are preferred. Fluency in additional languages is a bonus. Applicants should indicate their proficiency in Microsoft Office and Adobe programs.
Interested candidates should submit a resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org .
