Professionals pursuing political careers can take on internship roles across nonprofit organizations, legal firms, consulting agencies, and governmental departments. The most successful interns are dedicated and focused, as these placements are competitive, and immersed in fast-paced environments. The placements offer opportunities to learn about political systems in various parts of the world, as well as policymaking, and advocacy on a variety of issues.

For those entering a governmental career, having a strong network of contacts to help you on your way is essential. Without those professional connections, it can be difficult to find a full-time role after graduation, or to make a transition from a different field. Remote government internships are designed to ensure interns build strong relationships with key experts. From teammates and managers to long-term mentors, the connections made during these placements are vital elements of successful careers. Interns leave their placements with excellent references and potential letters of recommendation, as well as experts to offer advice throughout a career.

In addition to a strong professional network, interns develop other key skills that make them strong applicants in the various facets of government work. Depending on the placement, interns gain essential experience in researching a variety of topics, planning political events, and conducting outreach on various platforms. Additionally, these placements allow interns to gain skills in leadership, collaborating with remote teams, public speaking, and project management. Of course, in a remote setting, self-motivation and organization skills are also essential, and allow interns to take on important roles in their host organizations.
