Sierra Club Careers

Sierra Club Media Team Internship:
Washington, D.C

*Accepting applications on a rolling basis.*

Winter/Spring deadline: November 15
Summer deadline: April 15
Fall deadline: July 15

Are you wondering if a career as a communications professional is for you? This internship program will offer you a chance to learn about crafting strategic communications, pitching reporters, and organizing media outreach.

The Sierra Club's national media team is seeking a motivated and personable intern. This is a great opportunity to learn more about communications in the progressive non-profit world, while making an impact on critical environmental and political issues.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Pitching stories to the media
  • Drafting and editing press materials, including content for social media and blogs
  • Monitoring and compiling Sierra Club media coverage
  • Attending Congressional hearings
  • Providing general support for the Media team
  • Other individual projects as assigned

The ideal candidate would be a self-motivated, energetic, strategic thinker with very strong writing abilities, good phone skills, and a passion for environmental and social justice. Willingness to take risks and manage own projects is a plus. Responsibilities will be tailored to personal skills and areas of interest.

Other qualifications: Current college student or recent college graduate. If you are foreign student, we cannot review your application unless you are part of a program that arranges your paperwork for you--we cannot arrange an H1B visa.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

Minimum 20 hours scheduled at your discretion; full-time preferred. One internship position available at this time. This position is unpaid, but class credit, scholarship, and travel stipend may be available. We are willing to provide any documentation necessary to help students get class credit.
