Looking for energetic and motivated students to intern (or volunteer) for the Mark Padgett for Knoxville City Mayor campaign (www.VotePadgett.com).
Interns will be mentored by the campaign manager and communications director to gain firsthand political, public relations, grassroots, and social media experience. This is not an administrative position - interns will learn valuable skills and hands-on experience.
Candidates must have strong writing, editing and research skills, proficiency with Microsoft Word/Excel/PowerPoint, and an ability to manage multiple tasks under tight deadlines. Previous campaign experience is not required or necessary.
Position is unpaid (work-related expenses are covered) but the schedule is flexible. We'll work with our interns to secure school credit and/or serve as a professional reference for future internships/employment.
Please send resumes to Laura Braden: laura AT votepadgett DOT com.
