Position description

Mission

Network 20/20 bridges the gap between the private sector and the foreign policy worlds, engaging rising and established professionals meaningfully in foreign policy. We promote the open exchange of ideas on foreign affairs and essential people-to-people connections across international borders. We foster a community of diverse, smart, and engaged people, people who come from different countries, faiths, generations, and political views, all of whom are interested in better understanding the various trends and divergent interests that are shaping geo-economics, politics, and culture. We strive to promote the idea of global citizenship—that being an informed citizen of one’s country means understanding the global context and actively contributing one’s ideas and experiences to the conversation.

We are seeking a part-time (Monday – Friday) fourteen-week commitment. This internship requires a commitment of two-three days a week (which can be arranged between you and Network 20/20 during your first day). This is a paid internship.

Internship Description

We are currently seeking a communication intern who is a highly energetic, tactful and engaging self-starter who can bring creative thinking to engage and grow Network 20/20’s members and broader audience on Network 20/20’s web and social media platforms. The intern will work closely with the Program Coordinator and the President to undertake various communication projects related to our programs, networking, outreach, and other ongoing projects. While the intern will primarily focus on communications and marketing, s/he will also have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience and training in many aspects of Network 20/20’s program and also learn about the operations of a small nonprofit organization.

  • Assisting in the development and production of marketing and promotional materials
  • Assisting staff with promoting events through posts and strategic boosting
  • Learn and participate actively in the content of Network 20/20 (e.g. be able to speak intelligently about our mission and programs)
  • Various administrative tasks related to communications and Network 20/20, as needed 

Qualifications

  • Passion for and understanding of international affairs
  • Knowledge and experience on how to use different social networks
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Excellent attention to detail, good organizational abilities, general office skills, and strong computer skills
