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.
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.
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.
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.
Applicants should send their resume to Robert Monsour (contact information listed below).
