**New to 2018**
Democratic National Committee (DNC), Office of the Chair
Interning at the DNC is a unique opportunity for hardworking, passionate future leaders to gain real life, hands-on experience in Democratic politics, strengthen their understanding of the political process and prepare for future political opportunities. It's also a great way to form lasting connections and memories.
In addition to typical intern duties you will have the chance to volunteer in community outreach projects and grassroots organizing, assist at DNC functions, take tours across Washington, D.C., and attend weekly lunches hosted by DNC staff.
The Chair’s Office is responsible for assisting, staffing, and scheduling the Chair in all of his DNC-related responsibilities. Interns can expect to assist the Chief of Staff and provide support for the Chair’s Office to maximize the Chair’s efficiency and efficacy in leading the Democratic Party. Responsibilities include, but are not limited to: preparing briefings for upcoming meetings and events, assisting with scheduling, booking travel, managing data, and providing further operational support.
With the midterms upon us in 2018, interns should be prepared to complete assignments with short deadlines, work in a fast-paced and high-pressure environment, and be comfortable prioritizing requests from multiple supervisors.
