House Democratic Campaign Opportunity

I work for the House Democratic Campaign Committee and we are currently looking for energetic, detailed oriented people with an interest in politics to work on Democratic State Legislative campaigns as Campaign Managers in Pierce Country and other parts of Western Washington. We will be attending the UPS Career Fair this Thursday, 3/1, and we are hoping to meet students from the Politics and Government department, as I think these are great opportunities for them. Is there a listserv in your department that you could send our job description out to? Or another way to make sure your students are aware of the opportunity? I have attached our job description and it can also be found on the Logger Jobs Board (job ID # 13392).

Thank you very much for your assistance. We are looking forward to meeting your great students this Thursday!

Intern at Talking Points Memo

TPM interns are vital to our operation and have a hand in everything we do. They work alongside our reporters to write and break stories, help our editors keep a finger on the pulse of the news day, and produce all kinds of digital media from youtube clips to mash-up photographs. Some of our interns have gone on to jobs here at TPM, others have moved on to jobs in new and old media alike, working for Think Progress, The Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, The New York Sun, The Washington Post and more.

Because each intern is encouraged to work in multiple parts of our operation, it's important that applicants have a basic understanding of new media technologies (blogging, youtube, etc.) and a desire and ability to learn quickly.
Video Intern

We are looking for one intern who is video specific. This person should have a working knowledge of Final Cut, and be ready and excited to dive into the world of TPMtv.
Publishing Intern

We're putting out a special call for a publishing intern. We're looking specifically for someone with some nice design and tech skills to work with us creating special projects and helping us out with site development. Ideally this candidate will be an html and css ninja, have some Photoshop and Flash chops and maybe have dabbled in javascript or php and/or the Movable Type publishing platform.

To apply for any of our internships, send an email to talk at talkingpointsmemo.com with a cover letter, resume and two references. If you're interested in video or publishing, please specify that in your cover letter. Include in the email subject "TPM Video Internship," "TPM Publishing Internship" or "TPM Internship" for all non-video/publishing interns. All internships are unpaid and based in TPM's New York City office.
