Project Description

We are looking for highly motivated interns who will track placements in foreign language media following media events at the Foreign Press Centers (FPC). Using our transcripts and questions logs, hunt down the placements in traditional and new media, blogs and social media platforms, and let us know if the reporters got the message -- and what conclusions they drew for their readers.

The intern will support the work of a small team within the FPC working on media outreach that advances U.S. foreign policy priorities for the East Asia and Pacific (EAP) region, including promoting a free and open Indo Pacific region, strengthening international resolve towards the denuclearization of North Korea, and building a constructive, results-oriented relationship with China. This team will analyze the effectiveness and impact of our programming in the region, and brainstorm new ways of creating positive influence and change in the region.

The intern will track the impact of FPC Media Events through traditional, web-based and social media placements from Washington-based foreign correspondents from the EAP region. We need interns with excellent foreign language abilities (Chinese, Korean, or Japanese, preferred) and superior analytic and writing skills. Using our transcripts and questions logs, the intern will hunt down the placements in traditional and new media, blogs and social media platforms, and let us know if the reporters got the message -- and what conclusions they drew for their readers.

Our mission at the Foreign Press Centers is to deepen understanding of U.S. policy and American values through engagement with foreign media. We provide clear and accurate understanding of policy and American values to global audiences via first-hand access. The United States Department of State has Foreign Press Centers in Washington, D.C. and New York. The Foreign Press Centers support U.S. policies by helping foreign media cover the U.S. We promote the depth, accuracy, and balance of foreign reporting from the U.S. by providing direct access to authoritative American information sources.
