The House Democratic Caucus is seeking motivated, detail-oriented Digital interns to work remotely in a fast-paced leadership office. Interns will be primarily responsible for creating digital products and content using various social media and creative design platforms. The program will also include an educational work component in which interns will attend remote congressional briefings and hearings, conduct research, draft internal documents and participate in professional development sessions.
The term of this paid internship will be from June to August 2021. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, interns will solely work remotely for the duration of the internship and be provided the appropriate work equipment. Applicants do not need to be in the Washington, D.C. area but must be willing to work on Eastern Time.
Ideal applicants will have a professional and positive attitude, a demonstrated knowledge of Democratic politics and problem-solving skills. Digital candidates should have proficiency with social media platforms, graphic design, video editing software and other digital programs. Strong writing skills are required to excel in this role. A passion for politics, the legislative process and the digital creative industry is a plus.
Qualified applicants should send PDF versions of their resume, cover letter, digital portfolio or digital examples along with three professional references to CaucusInternResume@mail.house.gov with the subject line “APPLICANT NAME DIGITAL Summer 2021 Internship Application.” Women, people of color, LGBTQIA+ individuals, veterans and those with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
