At Campaigns & Elections, our goal is to provide our interns with a unique and well-rounded experience – partially shaped by the employees of the magazine and partially shaped by the intern. We welcome interns to take part in everyday life at C&E - brainstorming sessions, client meetings, conferences and editorial content. Our interns are not secretaries, they are a core and essential part of our team!
C&E offers four internships each semester (in accordance with all major colleges and universities), including summer: one in our Events/Marketing Department, one in the International Programs Division and two in our Editorial Department. Descriptions and requirements for each position are listed below. Junior/Senior students preferred and a minimum of a 3.2 GPA is required. All internships are unpaid but we will gladly work with you to obtain credit at your college or university.
Interested students should send a cover letter, resume and a writing sample to firstname.lastname@example.org.
