Lombard, IL… State Senate Candidate Chris Nybo (R-Elmhurst) is currently seeking volunteer high school and college interns for the summer.
“The Campaign Intern Program provides a unique opportunity for community-minded young people to learn more about state elections, political strategies and voter contact,” said Nybo. Many former interns have been able to pursue great opportunities after completing this internship including; working in Washington DC as interns and staff for Chief Deputy Whip US Congressman Peter Roskam, staff position with US Senator Mark Kirk, National Lobbying Firm positions, staff positions in the Illinois General Assembly and one of our interns currently serves as a Specialist in Linguistics in the US Army. Greg Hart, who managed our primary campaign was originally a campaign intern who went on to be a White House intern and a consultant to the Department of Homeland Security before coming home to manage the Senate primary. Many also went on to very strong private business opportunities after completing their internships and studies. Still others are pursuing graduate degrees. In total, the Nybo team has mentored over 30 interns, all of whom have made important contributions and benefited from their experience.
The internship program will be offered during the summer months from June 10 through Sept.1 and provides hands-on experience in community relations and communications, monitoring local issues, along with formulating and evaluating political positioning.
Education and community service credits can be considered for this experience. Summer internships are flexible in terms of hours and length of commitment for students who may have other obligations.
Applicants are encouraged to provide a resume by email to [email protected] by June 3, 2014.
