Jorah was a senior graduating from George Washington University in May 2016 with a degree in Political Communication, and a minor in Music. She has held a wide variety of communications internships, including with a Congressional campaign, an international development organization, and an event-planning company. Jorah hopes to enter the field of PR after graduation, ideally working with arts and music organizations, which would be a happy marriage of all of her interests!

C+G is a wonderful and welcoming environment in which to learn and work. I have sincerely enjoyed my time with this company, and am thankful for the experience I have earned in strategic deployment of social media, research, and writing.

Matt started interning for C+G a few months after he graduated from Emerson College, where he earned a B.S in Marketing Communications. As a student, he interned at a few different agencies where he could explore his primary career interests: PR, social media, content marketing and all the ways these areas intersect. His goal is to pursue a career where he can help companies tell their stories through digital marketing and communications.

Interning at C+G has helped me develop my skills as a marketer. I’ve been given the opportunity to work on a number of high-level projects, including a website redesign for one of their clients. The entire team is really supportive and treats interns as if they are regular employees. It’s been a great experience!

While interning with us, Sally was working toward her Masters in German and European Studies (MAGES) at Georgetown University. Throughout her studies she has focused on topics in international business and trade as they pertain to the transatlantic policy sphere. Prior to attending Georgetown, she worked as a Project Manager at Morningside Translations, an IP and corporate translation services firm. After Georgetown, she plans to work in communications in the field of international policy or business.

Working at Conover + Gould has opened my eyes to how overarching an effective communication strategy can be. And the more you care, the more effective you are!

Kemi recently earned an MA in Communications from Georgia State University and applied for the C+G internship to get hands on experience and learn about best practices in the PR/Communications industry. She is looking to move on into an associate/entry level position in a communications firm and work with great brands in the future.

As an intern at C+G, you determine how much you want to get out of the internship because everyone is willing to show you what to do and how to do it. It is really a rewarding experience.

Alex was a summer intern prior to his senior year at Elon University in North Carolina, where he majored in Strategic Communications and a minor in Environmental Studies. Previously, he was a public relations and marketing internship for DC Home Buzz, a real estate brokerage in Washington D.C. Alex plans to pursue a career abroad, expanding his knowledge of the communications world and diving into new cultures.

Conover + Gould is a place where I continually learned about new subjects and communication approaches. Whether it is helping an insurance company more strategically connect to their target audience or researching Twitter content for a health care organization, I learned something new every day.

Ciara studies Homeland and National Security Studies with a focus on Arab World Studies and a minor in Arabic Language at American University. After graduation, she plans on attending law school and hopes to begin a career in the FBI as a special agent in counterterrorism or intelligence. She is particularly interested in how culture influences attitudes and behaviors, especially in the Middle East.

Interning with Conover + Gould was my first intern experience. I imagined going to Starbucks three times a day to bring back complicated drinks for my coworkers, but my time here has been anything but that. Instead, I’ve gained hands-on experience in professional media use. I had the opportunity to improve my skills in public relations and social media, and learned something new about the field of strategic communications each day.
— Ciara Petrello


Sophie started interning for C+G the fall after her senior year at Hobart and William Smith Colleges. While in school, she majored in Medieval History and minored in Spanish and Latin American Studies. Previously, Sophie worked in development, helping to raise money for her college's annual fund. After completing her internship, Sophie hopes to attend graduate school.

Interning at Conover + Gould has been a great way to transition from academia into the workplace. I have had the opportunity to work on a project that combines my interests in fundraising and media relations. I can’t think of a better way to learn about communications than my hands-on experience at Conover + Gould.

Interning with C+G has been a great experience! I have learned so much about the strategies and tools that make up a successful communication plan.
— Rebecca Payne

Natalie interned with C+G during the summer before her senior year at the University of Connecticut, where she is a Resource Economics major and Political Science minor. Her studies focused on environmental policy and international development. She had previous experience in the world of the environment and politics, having interned for the CT League of Conservation Voters and Senator Chris Murphy. Natalie plans to work in public policy.

As the C+G Energy and Environmental Communications Intern, my internship was directly related to my personal and academic interests. I sharpened my research and writing skills while contributing to projects on energy efficiency and climate change. I also developed new skills, creating content for a professional twitter account. The guidance provided by the C+G team, coupled with the freedom to work independently to meet objectives, made for a constructive internship experience.

I had a very enjoyable time at C+G during my summer internship. I actually participated in the day-to-day projects of the firm and witnessed how a strategic communications firm operates. I was able to work on a wide variety of tasks that gave me hands-on experience in this evolving industry.
— Matthew Gerstenberg


Katherine started interning at C+G during the spring semester of her dual M.A. in Public Policy and European Studies at Georgetown University, studying the intersection of government relations and business affairs. Prior to joining us, Katherine had been active in several nonprofits, including Big Brother Big Sister and Girls on the Run. Her goal is to work in government affairs and corporate social responsibility.

From the first day, I was thrown into the midst of things - this is not just an internship where you stuff envelopes and make copies. Watching C+G’s talented team, I was able to learn more about strategic communications than I ever thought possible, from twitter to corporate social responsibility campaigns. Each day presented new challenges, and the team was always there to help me succeed and grow.
— Katherine Shea


Carly began her internship during the fall semester of her M.A. in Communication program from Johns Hopkins University. Her degree focus is in emergency health communication, and includes strategic and digital communications development. Previously, she worked as an analyst in strategic sourcing at the California Department of General Services. Carly was such a great fit that she joined our team at the end of her internship!

My time with Conover + Gould was a fantastic and rewarding experience. They were welcoming and included me as an important team member from day one. The team encouraged me to flourish and grow important skills for my future. I was able to make key contributions towards a variety of complex projects and interact with clients. I feel fortunate to have worked with an amazing group of talented individuals.

Lindsay started interning for C+G as a third-year student at American University pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Public Communications and American Studies. Lindsay was experienced in news writing and non-profit work, previously interning at a mentoring and literacy organization Everybody Wins! DC. She hopes to share her passion for communications and storytelling to advance social justice causes such as education, environmentalism and economic empowerment.

Conover + Gould is a tight-knit, cutting-edge firm that quickly immersed me into their projects. From the get-go, Heather and her staff had me drafting press releases and content for websites. Working with such a smart group of people has allowed me to explore communications in an in-depth way that builds on the theory I’m learning in class. I can’t think of a better place to learn more about this exciting and evolving field!

Jerrod came to us during his summer break from Bowdoin College, where he was a double major in Government and Environmental Studies. He had previously interned as a research assistant for an Environmental History Professor at Yale University. He hopes to work for a communications consulting firm specializing in political campaigns or environmental policy.

Conover + Gould was a wonderful place to spend my summer interning. Every day I learned something new about the communications industry and was able to contribute to the firm’s projects. Working at a small firm was the best decision I ever made. Instead of getting coffee and making copies, I was involved in the execution of different projects and interacted with our clients on a daily basis. Heather Conover and her team made me feel like a member of the C+G family from day one and are some of the most friendly and talented people I have ever worked with. They even took me to the National Zoo one morning!
