We strive to make the internship a hands-on opportunity for students to work as part of our team and gain valuable experience in the strategic communications and public affairs industries. We've had some wonderful people intern at C+G along the way:
Meet Our Interns
Ashley is a recent graduate from Washington University in St. Louis, where she majored in Economics and Strategy and Marketing. Prior to C+G, she interned in the Senate, on the Clinton campaign, and at several communications agencies. She hopes to pursue a career at the intersection of media and politics.
"Working at C+G has allowed me to get a hands-on approach to strategic communications and learn the ins and outs of creating an effective campaign. The experience has been a great way to translate my interests in media and PR to valuable skills, and I'm learning something new every day. Everyone on the team has also been incredibly supportive and fun to work with."
Dagoberto is currently pursuing his Bachelor's in Political Communication at Bluefield University. Prior to joining us, he interned at the Greater Bluefield Chamber of Commerce and Active Minds, a nonprofit that advocates for mental health. He's also a part of the American Studies Program, where he focuses on immigration studies and policy issues such as DACA.
"When I first joined Conover and Gould, I was excited for the opportunity to integrate the material I have learned in the past to present projects. More importantly, I have always desired to be the voice of change and not just the recipient of it; at C+G, I've been able to do just that. I have learned about material that I would have never learned in a classroom setting, like how localized physical system analysis and financial analysis are essential for power distribution planning. This internship has provided an unending appetite and hunger for learning about a plethora of topics, while being creative and applying intellectual inquiry into strategy work."
Maddie Smith - Washington DC - Summer 2018
Maddie is a recent graduate from James Madison University, where she studied communications. She's interested in pursuing a career in public relations, which is why she joined us! She wants to utilize her research, writing and creative skills while also working towards making change.
"Interning at C+G allowed me to assist with research on clients and news trends, practice media pitching, draft media lists and so much more. It gives me a glimpse inside the communications realm, and I can’t wait to see what happens next."
Meaghan is currently a rising senior at American University studying strategic communication and business administration. In addition to her studies, she also competes as a member of the university’s Division I volleyball team. In the future, she hopes to attend law school and study communication/intellectual property law.
"I chose to intern with Conover + Gould because I saw it as an opportunity to use my skills in writing, researching and communications to make a real impact on clients and to learn from the knowledgeable and experienced staff members. This experience has allowed me to see and understand the real world impact of the type of regulation I wish to study."
Tyler joined C&G while studying at Georgetown University's Masters in Public Relations and Corporate Communications program. As part of this program, he provides digital analytics services for several D.C. institutions. He previously worked in journalism, covering a variety of topics from crime to local business to entertainment. An ardent admirer of D.C. museums and the environment, he hopes to serve as Director of Communications for a Smithsonian museum or an environmental firm.
“One of the best things about interning with Conover & Gould is the different aspects of the communications world you learn. Researching complex subjects, helping draft communications proposals and planning speaking engagements have been very helpful in developing my skills.”
