DUSTY'S PICK: Press Intern - Office of the Secretary of Health and Human Services
JOB ID: 48158

Employers really value well-developed communication skills and experience working under deadline. It's even better if you gained those skills working in a high-profile arena setting that combines media, government, and public service. And it's tough to beat Washington, DC as a memorable place to live for a summer. 

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is seeking a press intern for summer 2015. The position will give you real credibility as you look to market your organization, communication, and multi-tasking experience to future employers. It's a classic case of an unpaid internship where the skills you gain will continue to pay off for a long time if you plan to work in any field related to communication, media, public service, or government. 

The job requirements and background are open ended, with no preferred majors. That's fitting because after this job, you will be better positioned for a great range of exciting fields.
