Key Votes Intern

May - August 2019 • Des Moines, IA

What I liked

I really enjoyed the work environment. Staff were very supportive and helped through each step of the training, and gave very useful tips and corrections for my writing or data entry. It's a good place to work in the summer if you have any interest in politics or public policy. The skills gained are useful for future work in an office or research environment.

What I wish was different

Advice

If you need to earn money over the summer for whatever reason, they are flexible with hours to accommodate for a second job or internship, since this internship is unpaid. As long as you let them know ahead of time then there really isn't an issue!
