We're Looking For a Few Good Interns
GlobalSecurity.org is an Alexandria, VA, based research organization that focuses on defense, space and intelligence issues. We provide research, analysis and commentary to the news media, military, and public at large. GlobalSecurity.org is on the cutting edge of research and analysis, and by publishing our analysis on our website we are, in minute ways, affecting the moves of world players.
We accept applications for internships to supplement our small staff on a rolling basis. Internships are open to highly-qualified undergraduate and graduate students as well as recent graduates.
Responsibilities for interns would include website development, research, and analysis. Unlike other internships, successful candidates should not expect to languish away in mail or copy rooms, nor will they spend their whole days answering letters or phones. Extensive experience with programming is not required but a familiarity with computers and the internet is a neccessity. If you're afraid of the computer, this is probably not the place for you.
Internships take place at our offices in Alexandria, Viriginia. We are unable to offer any type of remote internship. Internships are open to US citizens/residents or individuals authorized to work in the United States. Non-US citizens/residents are responsible for their own travel and visa arrangements. GlobalSecurity.org does not serve as a sponsor for internship work authorization.
Internships are unpaid. GlobalSecurity.org cannot offer financial compensation to interns, but does offer a positive work environment that is unlike anything one may ever experience. Hours are extremely flexible as our offices are open seven days a week, thus allowing students to work around their busy schedules. Most importantly, we offer our interns the opportunity to work in an office that is in the thick of things, not only supplying analysis to media organizations, but often making news.
If you are interested in applying for an intern position at GlobalSecurity.org please send the following:
- cover letter
- short writing sample
- dates of availability
- 2 letters of recommendation and/or references
While we do not have a fixed submission deadline, we do have a limited number of spots. Applicants are therefore encouraged to submit their application materials early.
Internship applications should be directed to:
