Currently we have the most opportunity in the following areas:
Communications and Marketing Interns
The Internet Education Foundation hosts the largest Internet policy conference in the United States, Congressional briefings, and related events for the State of the Net Conference (SOTN), the Congressional App Challenge, and the Congressional Internet Caucus Advisory Committee (ICAC). Communications and Marketing Interns will manage promotional and other event content on IEF websites, contact and plan with Congress and industry experts to organize IEF events, develop detailed IEF marketing plans, and assist with media relations.
Often policy experts and academics on sabbatical work with IEF to develop robust programs for IEF forums such as the Congressional Internet Caucus Advisory Committee and the State of the Net series. For instance, in 2013/2014 Syracuse professor Milton Mueller coordinated a series of Internet governance dialogues for the State of the Net Conference. We value the contributions of our fellows and provide unparalleled opportunities for in-depth policy exploration through our platforms.
IEF policy interns are given wide latitude to help organize briefings and conference panels for the Congressional Internet Caucus Advisory Committee and the State of the Net series. Topics include a wide range of Internet policy issues.
State of the Net Fellows
Every year the State of the Net Conference happens in late January. Leading up to the conference is an intense period of time requiring extra hands skilled in policy analysis, event planning and marketing/communication. If you are free to help organize and execute this conference during the months of November, December and/or January, please apply to be a State of the Net Fellow [more here].
IEF runs on WordPress. Interns with experience with HTML, CSS, and Salesforce are very welcome.
