Fall 2017 Events Internship

Fall 2017 Events Internship

Care about the facts? So do we. Since 2007, we have been committed to non-partisan journalism. We create products and deliver content of consequence; they have the power to change the course of history by making democracy better through our coverage of politics, policy, and power. As long as those intersect, there will be a need for POLITICO and our stories. That's where you come in.

POLITICO Live is our in-house events team here at POLITICO. Just last year, we hosted over 100 events across the country. We're looking for an intern to join our POLITICO Live team and help bring POLITICO journalism to life.

Who you are:

  • A junior, senior, or recent graduate (within the last six months)
  • Ability to work well under pressure
  • A self-starter with a can-do attitude where no task is too small
  • Available to work approx. 15-18 hours per week from September 5th through December 1st.

What you'll do:

  • Support the POLITICO Live team on the planning and production of high-profile, newsworthy event programs for the organization
  • Support logistics for POLITICO events, such as attendee identification, creative development and day-of execution
  • Work events around Washington, DC alongside the POLITICO Live team

What you'll need:

  • A keen interest in politics, policy, and the political process
  • Exceptionally strong organizational skills
  • Experience using Microsoft Office products, including Word, Excel and PowerPoint

Come help us build the story. We check our comfort zones at the door each day to foster innovation, and because we believe in each other's ambitions, we come together to create something meaningful.

We value our people. We offer a competitive compensation and comprehensive benefits package, including health and wellness benefits, commuter benefits, retirement plans, as well as work-life balance flexibility and opportunities for career development.

Let's keep in touch. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter at @politicocareers and #meetPOLITICO for a deep dive into what makes us POLITICOs and our adventures. We'd love to hear from you!
