The Winston Group is a Republican survey research and strategic communication firm in Washington, D.C. Candidates should have an interest in public policy and political research. The Winston Group’s Director’s Internship offers an up-close look at the political consulting world, as well as firsthand experience with political survey research and polling analysis. Interns will gain exposure to many diverse policy topics and will leave the internship with a fuller understanding of the intersection between political strategy and policy outcomes. Director’s Interns will have a wide area of responsibility in our small firm: providing support in drafting poll questions, focus group scripts and analysis papers, updating accurate polling databases, and general administrative support. A background in statistics is helpful (though by no means required). Computer skills involving Microsoft Office are essential; additional skills in working with Apple computers, Keynote, Final Cut, web design, and Photoshop are recommended but not required.
