Three Days of the Intern

Day One - Think Tanks/NGOs - Capitol Hill & Political

With approaching deadlines for Summer 2009 internships, DCPA+CJ brings you our second intern-centric blowout: Three Days of the Intern. You'll find more than 200 intern opportunities (final number still to be determined; we're still adding new ones) – mostly in the public affairs field – posted over the next three days.

A few caveats, before we dive in:
  • We've been pulling these listings together for a couple of weeks, so it's possible a few links have been moved or deleted. Sorry for any dead ends.
  • In many cases, the link provided will take you to a main career page. This means you need to search further to find the internship (or multiple internships).
  • In a few cases, you may see outdated or incomplete info - meaning that this group hasn't updated their Summer 09 intern info yet. Of course, you could get ahead of the game by submitting your resume and cover letter early.
  • HR and intern-programming folks are more than welcome to post links to their opportunities below, or send them to me. I'll remove any posts that are spam, or not related to public-affairs internships.
  • Our first Intern Special was a simple - if extensive - alphabetical listing. For this multi-day edition, we'll be posting by organization type.

This is a wonderful list of opportunities! I am currently a college student looking for a summer internship and have been considering going to the DC area. It is going to be so much easier to find possible internships, all of the time you have spent working on this list is greatly appreciated.
