Publications and Advertising Internship



The Foreign Service Journal is offering Publications Marketing/Advertising internships to students majoring in business (marketing), communications, advertising and international relations. The Foreign Service Journal is a monthly, four-color magazine published by the American Foreign Service Association. The circulation is 17,500. Editorial aspects of the magazine focus mainly on foreign policy and other interests of the Foreign Service.


While working for The Foreign Service Journal, the intern would be expected to help design and operate a marketing campaign. Interns will gain experience in promoting a supplement, print advertising, direct mailing, phone skills, as well as overall production, circulation and distribution of the magazine.


Students need to be hard working and very dependable as displayed through past work experiences. They need to be detailed-oriented with a general understanding of marketing and advertising. Innovative ideas about marketing a magazine are a plus. Basic computer skills are a must.


This position is an excellent resume builder with hands-on experience. We will be glad to work with your university to coordinate possible college credit. Ideally, we would like the student to work 16-24 hours a week. All interns will receive a stipend commensurate with the hours worked: Those working 19 hours or fewer will receive $300; those who work 20-29 hours receive $500; and those who commit to 30-40 hours will receive $700.
