Intern with the North Carolina Democratic Party!

Are you looking for an opportunity to break into politics? Want to establish lasting connections and gain campaign experience? The North Carolina Democratic Party (NCDP) is currently accepting applications for its Spring 2016 class of Goodwin Fellows. Goodwin Fellows will work in an energetic atmosphere. They will be exposed to a dynamic political environment and will gain valuable on-the-job experience to supplement their academic background. The current election cycle will prove to be an exciting time as the Party prepares to elect a Democratic President, Democratic Governor, a Democratic United States Senator, Democratic Congresspeople, and strong Democratic candidates to our state house and state senate; and work to strengthen our Party in communities throughout North Carolina. This is an excellent opportunity to obtain practical campaign experience and network with candidates and elected officials. The skills you will gain as a Goodwin Fellow are transferable to careers in po litics, public service, the non-profit sector, and beyond. For the Spring 2016 session, we are looking for interns to assist in the following areas:

  •   Finance
  •   Political
  •   Digital
  •   Communications
  •   Data
  •   Voter Protection

Because our work is largely collaborative, Goodwin Fellows will have the opportunity to work on multiple projects crossing multiple areas.

Our Goals:

  •   To provide Goodwin Fellows with a positive and dynamic working atmosphere in which they can cultivate their written, oral and interpersonal communication skills
  •   Establish a broad base of knowledge in political campaigns, grassroots politics, and state and county party organization
  •   Prepare the Goodwin Fellows with on-the-job experiences that will foster the practical development of their political skills and prepare them for careers in politics and public service

Goodwin Fellows Will:

  •   Possess problem solving skills, attention to detail, and excellent organizational skills
  •   Be professional, punctual, and teachable
  •   Have the ability to follow through on tasks and manage multiple tasks under a deadline
  •   Must be highly motivated and a self-starter
  •   Possess exceptional oral and written communication skills
  •   Have a demonstrated ability and desire to develop and maintain expertise in qualitative fieldwork
  •   Applicants must have a basic understanding of the American political system
  •   Applicants will need a strong work ethic and positive attitude
  •   Applicants will need a basic understanding of Microsoft Office and/or Google Drive

First priority will be given to applicants who can commit to work at least 12 (12-15 preferred) hours each week for the duration of the internship. There is some flexibility with scheduling, but applicants should have availability during business hours at least two days during the workweek.
