Advocacy Internships

Signal Group is looking for intern candidates interested in a career in government relations and advocacy. Our internship program provides the opportunity to be fully integrated into client teams at a top D.C. firm. Interns participate in vital day-to-day work and contribute to congressional monitoring, policy analysis, legislative tracking, and more. Our advocacy client teams specialize in a variety of issue areas including defense, trade, technology, environment, financial services, outdoor recreation, regional issues, and more. We value our interns for their unique, fresh perspectives and are open to receiving applications from candidates in unrelated fields, but the ideal candidate aspires to pursue a career in public policy, government, international relations, policy research, or other related fields.

At Signal, you will have the opportunity to work alongside staff with diverse backgrounds and gain experience from executive who are at the top of their field. Our team has worked with presidents, world leaders, diplomats, and CEOs across industries. We have an open door policy here at Signal; all of our staff are enthusiastic about mentoring our interns and helping them find the best place for them in the next phase of their career.

Signal prides itself on launching the careers of young professionals and has a long history of hiring interns as full-time members of the team. We host paid advocacy communications internships over three sessions each year:

  • Spring (January – May)
  • Summer (June – August)
  • Fall (September – December)

All positions are full time, Monday through Friday from 9:00am – 6:00pm. With health and safety as our top priority, interns may work remotely; however, applicants must be local to the DC/Maryland/Virginia area. This is a paid position.
