Democratic political fundraising firm seeks independent-minded, quick-thinking individual with knowledge of the political process and public policy, to work as a fundraising intern during the Spring 2016 Semester (beginning early-to-mid January, and running until early-to-mid May).
We have four clients in-cycle for the 2016 elections, three for the Senate, and one for the House: Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Gov. Ted Strickland (D-OH), Katie McGinty (D-PA) and Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD). Through the work you put in on these campaigns you will see every aspect of the campaign finance process. You will help plan events, staff the events you’ve worked on, and help with donor prospecting and database maintenance- all of which insure that our candidates are victorious in November.
Candidate must be reliable, possess excellent written and communications skills, a working knowledge of national politics, and an appreciation for a well-funded campaign.
Our firm also represents U.S. Senators Leahy (D-VT), Mikulski (D-MD), Klobuchar (D-MN), Casey (D-PA), Warner (D-VA), and Whitehouse (D-RI). Interns will have the opportunity to attend fundraising events and meet many of the members listed above. This internship is unpaid, though we are happy to work around class schedules and do offer class credit if you meet requirements put forth by your school. Interested candidates should email resumes to Jennings Heussner at firstname.lastname@example.org
