Campaigns & Elections
1901 N. Moore St.
DescriptionAt Campaigns & Elections, our goal is to provide our interns with a unique and well-rounded experience – partially shaped by the employees of the magazine and partially shaped by the intern. We welcome interns to take part in everyday life at C&E - brainstorming sessions, client meetings, conferences and editorial content. Our interns are not secretaries, they are a core and essential part of our team!
