International Student Conferences, Inc. (ISC) is a DC-based nonprofit organization that oversees four flagship programs: the Japan-America Student Conference (JASC), Korea-America Student Conference (KASC), China-America Student Conference (ChASC), and U.S.-Japan-Korea Trilateral Forum. Since 1934, ISC’s programs have sought to empower and inspire the next generation and U.S.-Asia leaders by facilitating student-led exchange programs for university students. Through academically intensive and culturally immersive programming, ISC’s conferences seek to foster international friendships and instill in participants a lifelong dedication to openness, diplomacy, and dialogue.
ISC is seeking a Communications and Events Associate (CEA) to work in tandem with the Executive Director and ISC’s student leaders to develop effective communications materials, manage email marketing campaigns, and oversee the logistical coordination of ISC’s student-led programs.
The ideal candidate will thrive in a dynamic work environment, tasked with handling multiple competing priorities. Interested applicants should have strong organizational skills and be comfortable working in a small non-profit setting where staff members “wear multiple hats” and enjoy taking on whatever needs doing. The ideal candidate will be passionate about developing students into confident leaders. Adaptability and the ability to think creatively to find lasting solutions is key to the CEA role.
