Unlike most internships you might find in Washington, working with No Labels will be first and foremost a hands-on experience. Fetching coffee or making copies is not in the job description. Our interns take an active role in developing content, managing logistics, and promoting the movement. Working at No Labels you will find unprecedented independence, cultivating and implementing strategic initiatives. Specific projects will vary between our departments:
NEW HAMPSHIRE: As you know, New Hampshire is one of the best places in the country to make a difference in presidential elections. Establishing an early, youthful and energized presence in this relatively-small state will help our movement stand out in the eyes of New Hampshire’s citizens, preparing them to stand up with us in 2016 as we push presidential candidates to commit to becoming problem solvers and governing with the help of a National Strategic Agenda. Work will include door-to-door canvassing, phone calls to voters, research, hand writing postcards/mailings, polling and attending presidential candidate events. Click here to learn more.
GRAPHIC DESIGN: This division will be a central part of the organization throughout the summer and will be responsible for attracting hundreds of thousands of online visitors to No Labels. Interns in this department will regularly design and create unique images, illustrations, and infographics to engage activists through social media. New unique content will be developed and produced by graphic design interns and will then be promoted on our website and through multiple online channels. Applicants should be creative and have experience and proficiency in Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, and/or Adobe Photoshop.
DIGITAL: Interns will help build and execute an online, nationwide strategy to grow No Labels to over one million supporters. Interns in this department will craft emails to recruit supporters, engage citizens through social media, and write blog posts to get our message out. Applicants with experience in journalism, or writing under tight deadlines, are especially encouraged to apply.
FIELD: Interns working in the field department are charged with personal outreach to supporters and recruiting new activists to help spread the No Labels message. Interns in this department should have a great attitude, be personable and outgoing, and feel comfortable speaking on the phone.
RESEARCH: The research department facilitates the work of every other department in the office by analyzing political campaigns, keeping track of voting records and new bills in Congress, and working on special projects as they arise. Interns should be computer and Excel savvy, hard-working, and focused.
