Interns: Take it to the Next Level!

Posted By Scott Betts, GAIN Intern, Tuesday, August 17, 2010
If you're a summer intern in DC, like I am, you're probably starting to wonder what you're going to do with your life once your time here is over. For many of you, the idea of a career in politics is tempting, but it's not like you'll wake up one day to discover you've got a paying job.

That doesn't mean that finding a job needs to be a difficult process. There are tips and tricks that DC professionals know well, including specific tactics to leverage your internship experience during the job hunt. For instance, did you know that for most interns, it's not a matter of simply updating your resume to include your most recent internship; in all likelihood, you're going to need to change entire sections of your resume!

GAIN is holding a special Intern to Career Workshop this Friday, from 4 PM to 5:30 PM, both in our DC office and via webinar. Because we understand that many interns have not had exposure to Democratic GAIN before (and because we know a lot of you are working for free!), we're offering this event at the discounted, members-only price of $5 for everyone.

If you aren't an intern, but you work in an office that has interns, make sure to pass this along to them! This is a valuable opportunity designed just for interns that will give them the edge they need.

Join GAIN, along with Courtney Sieloff (founder of the JobsThatAreLeft listserv) and other political professionals, this Friday and kickstart your political career! Click here to register for this event!
