Intern with former Navy Admiral and Congressman Joe Sestak

Former Navy Admiral and Congressman Joe Sestak is seeking applicants for a non-paid telecommuting

internship position on his U.S. Senate Campaign.

 

Qualifications

Applicants should be dedicated individuals who are bright and have a passion to achieve. Interns with

diverse majors are welcomed and desired to apply, from engineering and political science to

mathematics to communications, and should draw upon a strong background of analytical and

qualitative skills in order to accomplish assignments. No prior political experience is required, as interns

will gain comprehensive knowledge of the inner machinations of policy and politics and a deeper

understanding of the issues that face our country today. Microsoft Office fluency is a must, as well as

online research skills.

 

Responsibilities

Interns will be assigned to specific projects of well-defined categories that include, but are not limited to:

  • Data management: Learn the latest of various advanced database and data management software.

Interns will be tasked with maintaining systems related to donor, supporter, and communications

management, as well as learning the latest techniques and technologies employed by the most cutting-

edge of political campaigns and private corporations.

  •  Policy research: Develop a broad research plan on a topic, then, utilizing resources such as non-partisan

policy institutes and academic journals, examine, analyze and identify salient facts that are needed to

support a specific op-ed, policy paper, or speech. Researchers will have to employ their own ingenuity

and creativity to apply found facts in an innovative way.

 

Expectations

Interns are given specific instructions on each assignment, and appropriately guided throughout the

process. Work is continuously reviewed, as it is accomplished through a shared virtual server or

collaboration software. Regular phone meetings are scheduled to supplement constant electronic

exchange and communication, as well as virtual video meetings, depending on the project. Interns are

expected to turn in assignments on time, but consideration of a students’ semester schedule is given

when assigning due dates.
