Internships

The Pennsylvania Democratic Party seeks enthusiastic, hard-working interns for our Harrisburg, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh offices for Fall 2016 and 2017 seasons.

Interning for the Pennsylvania Democratic Party is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for students to gain real-life experience in Democratic politics as part of a team working with PDP Staff to elect Democrats across the state.

At a time when Republicans are launching assaults on Democratic priorities in state legislatures across the country, protecting Pennsylvania from extreme right-wing agendas could not be more urgent. From workers’ rights to women’s health to sustainable energy policy, the PDP is gearing up for a fight this fall, and we need you to fight with us. Interning with the PDP is a perfect way for aspiring political operatives to stand up for our shared values while gaining valuable skills that will create the groundwork for a career in Democratic politics.

We welcome applicants with a background in political science, social work, public policy, communications, computer science, graphic design, and other relevant fields.

We offer a flexible schedule and applicable credit for interns whenever possible.
