Intern, Research & Strategy (Summer 2018)

Los Angeles, CA


If you’re looking for a Summer 2018 internship, Propper Daley is hiring! We seek an intelligent, motivated, and resourceful intern who is excited to bring critical thinking and sharp analytical skills to our research and strategy team.

As a research and strategy intern at Propper Daley, you will support our social impact work, research and analyze social issue areas, and develop reports, presentations, and other memos for our team and our clients.

Propper Daley interns regularly interact with account leads and senior leadership on wide-ranging projects and issues. Through their work, interns contribute to the agency’s in-house research, issue expertise, strategy development efforts for new clients, and business development pitches.


A social impact agency based in Hollywood, Propper Daley helps our clients leverage their unique assets to create positive change in the world.  We work with influencers, brands and causes, providing both strategic and creative solutions to move the needle on the issues they care most about.  Our approach, rooted in behavioral science, moves beyond foundational "awareness raising" to those strategies and ideas that shift the attitudes and perceptions that lead to behavior change.

We believe deeply in working as teams. More often than not, social change requires collaborative creativity, disruption and complex problem solving. We hope to serve our clients as thought-partners, strategists, advisers, tacticians and all-around utility players as they move their important work forward. Each member of the Propper Daley team brings a diverse set of relevant expertise that uniquely positions us to get things done. This includes proven experience in coalition-driven social change, leadership of high-stakes political campaigns, experience building a shared policy agenda in arenas with fractured opinion, convening powerful learning communities to drive coordinated action, and supporting the growth and evolution of individual change agents.
