High Lantern Group (HLG) is a strategic positioning and reputation management consultancy focused on developing early-stage strategy and communications for some of the most iconic brands and dozens of notable public and private organizations.
Our Summer Associate (SA) Program is a structured, competitive twelve-week program. Summer Associates will be exposed to a wide range of consulting work in the fields of strategic communications, public affairs, public policy, and business strategy. SAs will be well-integrated team members, and responsibilities include researching market and industry trends, drafting client deliverables (such as research summaries, newsletters, social media messaging and press releases), constructing both internal and client-facing presentations, coordinating projects, and assisting with administrative duties. In addition, SAs will have access to HLG resources and leadership, making the experience both intellectually stimulating and supportive of career aspirations.
Candidates must have 1-2 years of experience and/or a graduate degree. Undergraduates
that expect to graduate after June 2023 will not be considered for the program at this
time. We do review applications for interns on a rolling basis. Please check our website for
available internship opportunities.
We seek motivated self-starters who have experience with or an interest in strategic
communications, business, politics, and public policy. Ideal candidates have excellent writing,
research, and communication skills, strong attention to detail, the capacity to balance multiple
responsibilities, and the ability to work independently.
Summer Associates will be compensated $22/hour with the expectation of a 40-hour
