Jane Castor for Mayor Campaign seeks interns

SPRING 2019 FELLOWSHIP & INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
The race to be the next Mayor of the City of Tampa is underway! The Jane Castor for Mayor campaign is looking to add dedicated college and high school students to the team who are dedicated to electing an experienced public servant to lead
our city.
If you are interested in becoming involved in local politics or see how campaigns work, this opportunity will be a great experience! With a team of professionals to learn from, Fellows and Interns will gain experience on a highly competitive
race that can help prepare them for 2020!
Given the nature of campaigns, responsibilities will vary based upon current needs but the program will attempt to personalize experiences based on interests and current objectives. Possible opportunities include:
Finance Department: Donor research, preparing mailings, updating donor database, completing research projects, and attending and staffing fundraising events.
Field/Political Department: Performing targeted voter contact, such as canvassing and phone banking; attending community events such as debates, forums, town halls, and rallies; recruiting and managing volunteers; updating
voter contact database, including cutting targeted lists and uploads; and assisting with cutting calls and walk lists.
Communications/Digital Department: Assisting with the execution of the communications and digital strategy, including media monitoring, content creation and curation, and data analysis.
Beyond assisting specific departments, all Fellows will be responsible for helping out in the office and should be prepared
to accomplish specified voter contact goals weekly.
Upon completion of the program, participants should possess a greater understanding of how campaigns operate and how the following areas impact campaigns:
o Political Fundraising
o Volunteer Recruitment and Coordination
o Voter Targeting and Outreach
o Data Collection and Integrity
o Team Building
o Event Organizing
Candidates for this position must be comfortable interacting with strangers in a variety of environments, including on the phone, at events, or while canvassing door-to-door. We are looking for individuals who demonstrate superb
communications skills, are friendly, outgoing and approachable, are flexible and adaptable, and are fast learners with the technology.
Desired commitment is 10-15 hours per week, including some weekends and evenings, for Interns; 15-20 hours per week for Fellows. The program will start in early January and run through either the March 5 General Election or April 23
Runoff, depending upon results.
If interested, please send a resume and a brief note indicating your interest with “Campaign Intern” to Joshua Howerton,
Campaign Coordinator (Joshua@JoshuaHowerton.com). Hiring will occur on a rolling basis.
Please note that this internship is unpaid. However, we intend to offer you the opportunity to learn skills that will be
helpful across many fields. Please check with your advisors and school for college credit.
