The Marc Elrich for County Executive campaign is seeking interns interested in learning about the inner workings of a grassroots campaign through our unique PAID internship program. Interns will learn about and perform various everyday responsibilities of successful campaigns, including voter contact, volunteer recruitment and management, event staffing, data management, political planning, communications, and campaign research. They will also receive training on how to construct a field program and will have opportunities to take on increased responsibility as the campaign progresses. The program will also include an educational component in which experts will speak with interns about various policy and political topics. Open to current and recent college students.
Interviews will be scheduled on a rolling basis and the internship will run through June 30, 2022 with the possibility to extend into the Fall. The Marc Elrich for County Executive campaign is an equal opportunity employer. The campaign is committed to including groups historically underrepresented due to race/ethnicity, religion, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, and/or ability. We strongly encourage members of underrepresented and marginalized communities to apply.
High School Internship Program
The Marc Elrich for County Executive campaign is seeking high school interns interested in learning about the inner workings of a grassroots campaign and helping to re-elect a progressive champion as Executive of Montgomery County.
This internship is unpaid but can be used for SSL hours if the high school student receives approval before beginning with the campaign. The program will involve training on the basics of voter contact, data management, events, and campaign research. It will also offer exposure to field and campaign strategy under the direction of one of the campaign’s field operatives. Students should leave the program with an understanding of how to make a grassroots campaign successful.
High school interns will be expected to behave professionally throughout this program, communicate clearly about their availability, and arrive at scheduled shifts on time and with a positive attitude. A willingness to volunteer on weekends and comfort working with groups of people are both a plus. High school interns will also be expected to familiarize themselves with the expectations outlined in the Marc Elrich for County Executive Handbook. To receive SSL hours, high school interns must be focused on campaign work and following through on given priorities during their shifts.
