INTERN WITH NATIONAL PUBLIC AFFAIRS ISSUE STRATEGIES GROUP UNDER EX-SENIOR CLINTON AND HILL AIDE. . . WRITE BYLINED MAJOR PAPER OPEDS, HELP ORGANIZE NEWS CONFERENCES WITH VIP POLITICOS!

(Washington, DC) -- A public affairs and issue strategy company headed by a senior Clinton administration Public Affairs Director and former congressional communications director for congressional leaders is looking for quality volunteer interns. You'll be developing public affairs strategies for progressive but realistic national issues and organizations -- including working with White House offices, leaders and members of Congress, national consumer and attorney groups, world sports agencies, health care rights supporters, efficient military systems advocates, drug policy/criminal justice experts, progressive political organizations, and others.

One key aspect is that you will research, write, and co-byline oped columns (opinion pieces) in major national newspapers--we've done 150+ recent ones (http://www.weinerpublic.com/opeds.html ).

Company President Bob Weiner served in the Clinton White House as a Director of Public Affairs from 1995-2001. Earlier, he worked for U.S. Congressmen John Conyers (D-MI), Charles Rangel (D-NY), Claude Pepper (D-FL), Ed Koch (D-NY), Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA). Bob believes in the genius of youth and opposes age discrimination --his first Washington position was as National Youth Vote Director for the Democratic National Committee at the Watergate during the famed 1972 Nixon-break-in of the headquarters. Opposing both sides of age discrimination, he was later Chief of Staff of the House Aging Committee, brought Colonel Sanders in as a witness, and helped abolish mandatory retirement. While working for President Clinton, he chastised Ken Starr as "big brother at its worst' and was credited by the New York Times as the first grand jury witness to stand on the courthouse steps and criticize Starr's "overreach." Weiner has directed the General Press Room for four Democratic National Conventions and the Daily Press Briefing Room for the most recent one.

"If you like politics and action, this is a great opportunity," Weiner said. "But you have to be fearless and organized to succeed. We deal with the top people in Washington, and I want good writers confident on the phone and in person. You do have to be willing to do whatever the workload requires -- no pride attacks in making copies or press if that's what we are doing that day. Most of all, I want someone who knows how to have fun while working because what we do is quite exciting -- we are making a difference," Bob concluded.

We have had recent opeds published in the Washington Post and Washington Times, New York Times, Miami Herald, Baltimore Sun, San Francisco Chronicle, Cleveland Plain Dealer, Boston Globe, New York Daily News, New York Post, Newsday, Palm Beach Post, South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Honolulu Star Bulletin, Atlanta Journal Constitution, Des Moines Register, Denver Post, Tallahassee Democrat, New York Post, The New York Daily News, Minneapolis Star Tribune and many others.

You'll help write opinion columns for major newspapers and will generate talking points for national network radio and TV shows (http://www.weinerpublic.com/radio.html). You'll develop public affairs strategies for national issues and organizations.

Applicant must have a car -- the headquarters is twenty-five minutes outside DC.

Lunch and transportation costs each day included, bonuses awarded for generating press coverage and publishing op-eds. Be part of meetings in Washington where Bob is on the Board of Governors and Committee member of cutting edge and influential national political and media organizations.
