Are you interested in politics and legislation lobbying ? Want to learn more about how to become a political activist ?
The TWU International Government Affairs department is offering an internship program that will train interns to advocate on behalf of all our members. Here are some details of what the program entails:
Interns will work at the International headquarters in Washington, DC for four weeks (specific dates to be determined). The Interns will work in the Government Affairs and COPE department, but their duties may, at times, include supporting the Communications and Research & Analysis departments, as well as the Division Directors and the IAC, as assigned. Competitive candidates will be active COPE supporters, engaged politically on the local and state level, possess strong communication skills (both written and oral), and have a working knowledge of Microsoft Office (Outlook, Word, PowerPoint, and Excel).
While working for the International, Interns will be trained to advocate on behalf of our members before high-level decision makers, including Members of Congress and administration officials. As those who participated in the previous internship program can attest, one of the greatest benefits of serving as a TWU International intern is the opportunity to meet many of the lawmakers that have a hand in making decisions in our government, as well as seeing firsthand how we effectively make policy changes in Washington, DC.
If this sounds like a good fit for you, contact the Local and we can go through the application process. Applicants must be members and contribute to COPE. Contact us by email at: email@example.com use “Intern” as the subject line.
