Political Jobs & Internships
Political jobs and internships from around New York and the country will be posted here as they become available.
Democratic National Committee - DC
The DNC is currently looking for Spring and Summer Finance Intern Applicants!
The DNC Finance Interns are part of the Democratic National Committee’s National Finance Team. The Finance Department oversees the fundraising operations at the DNC and is responsible for raising the funds that fuel Democratic Party activities in all 50 states. An intern in finance will learn the ins and outs of political fundraising. Interns will assist finance staff in the planning and execution of DNC fundraisers across the country. Typical daily intern tasks will consist of promoting upcoming events, managing donor databases, processing contributions, as well as other challenging tasks. However, the most rewarding part of being an intern in finance is being able to help staff local fundraising events with top Democratic leaders.
Schedules are flexible and we also accept those interested in volunteering.
To Apply: Resumes and cover letters should be emailed to email@example.com with the subject line "DNC Finance Intern." No phone calls, please. Applicants will be considered on a first come, first served basis.
American Enterprise Institute - DC
The AEI Summer Institute brings together up to 30 highly talented undergraduates for an opportunity in Washington, DC, unlike any other: a six-week, fully funded experience learning the principles of public policy analysis and discussing individual opportunity, free enterprise, and American leadership in the world with AEI scholars and fellows.
AEI researchers have a unique understanding of Washington, having spent time as high-level political appointees, executive branch consultants, journalists, professors, and writers. No other policy program has a core faculty with such diverse and distinguished backgrounds. Students also hear from other well-known DC insiders, policymakers, journalists, and business leaders. The 2014 Summer Institute will expose selected participants to new ideas, political theory, and research-based solutions to some of our nation’s biggest challenges. All participants will receive a $1,000 stipend, free housing, and free meals on class days.
To Apply: Fill out the application form here. The 2014 Summer Institute will take place at AEI’s headquarters from June 15th to July 26th. The deadline to apply is March 7th. Please contact Scott Fyall with any questions.
