2017 Intern Reflection: 

From my first day at Trilogy, I was welcomed into the office with warmth and kindness. The office culture at Trilogy, a start-up in Berkeley California, is extremely friendly and hard-working. Because the company is relatively small, I had opportunity to get to know everyone, and their roles and responsibilities within Trilogy. It was phenomenal to have the chance to meet with almost everyone in the office for a training on their work, which ranged from advertising to social media to project management to email production (for political candidates, sitting senators and non-profits). And, through these trainings, I was able to understand the entire company as a whole and thus better figure out the best role for me during my internship.

Since Trilogy is a start-up, I was able to work on a host of different projects that focused on everything from political research, to data management, to web development to email drafting and editing for clients. Trilogy works with a range of political candidates and non-profits, which allowed me the chance not only to be versed in national politics and policy, but local politics as well.

I recommend this job to anyone who wants to combine their love for technology with their passion for politics. I recommend this job to self-starters and motivators. Trilogy gives you the freedom to focus your work on what your passionate about, choosing a long-term project that best fits your expertise when you are not working short-term projects the team needs help with or in meetings with political candidates and non-profits.

I am so happy I was able to spend my summer at Trilogy, learning skills, such as client management, political research, effective fundraising techniques and web development that will serve me throughout my schooling and career. Could not recommend Trilogy enough!
