We are currently seeking energetic and proactive full-time or part-time interns to join our team and help support our rapidly growing public affairs practice. This could be great for any graduating Feb’s this spring!
The FTP internship program offers students and recent graduates substantive, practical and hands-on experience working at the nexus between the public and private sectors. Our program exposes interns to the daily workings of a highly reputable government relations and public affairs firm and affords them the opportunity to work specifically with our Public Affairs team. Interns will conduct research, write analyses, draft media content (including social media posts), prepare memos for meetings, and assist principals with client-facing projects. Interns will also work with FTP’s Operations team and gain experience preparing for and attending events, answering phones, and delivering packages to clients and Capitol Hill offices on an as-needed basis.
Ideal applicants have experience in media, communications, federal government, or public policy. They must have a keen attention to detail and exceptional writing abilities and interpersonal skills. Political experience, including work on Capitol Hill, within the executive branch, in-state/district offices or political campaigns, is preferred. FTP is an equal opportunity employer committed to building and maintaining an inclusive and diverse work environment. Diverse candidates are strongly encouraged to apply. Students enrolled in semester and/or quarter programs may apply.
Interested candidates should send a resume, cover letter, and two writing samples (1-3 pages) to firstname.lastname@example.org, Attn: Intern Program Director.

Every year there is a topic that we will lobby on and this year it is climate change. The dates are Saturday, March 28 to Tuesday, March 31 in Washington, D.C.
This spring will be an especially pivotal time in D.C. Join us this March and make your voice heard! Listen, learn, and act to address climate change. We will tell Congress that a price on carbon is a crucial first step to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prevent injustices related to climate change—both in the U.S. and abroad.
