Political Consultant Intern

May - August 2018 • Boston, MA

What I liked

Hands on experience working on 10+ campaigns on the local level to state and national races. I got a field for all of the different areas of a campaign: fundraising, canvassing, digital, and communications. Wrote press releases for local newspapers and made social media graphics for candidates.

What I wish was different

I wish I had done full time here- i was also a legislative intern for my state representative at the time so i only did this part time.

Advice

Make sure to get involved, there's tons of extra opportunities to help candidates and support their mission so take advantage of them.

Associate

May - August 2018 • Boston, MA

What I liked

I enjoyed how closely the associates were able to work with the candidates.

What I wish was different

Having a paid position would have been preferred to unpaid, but I still value every day in the office.

Advice

This experience really taught me how to network. My advice to others about my experience is to connect/follow up in some way with everyone you cross paths with in the professional world. You never know when those connections will help dow the road.
