Description

Company:
Ulection is a new social network for civic engagement. On Ulection, we can share and discuss important issues with our campus, location, candidates, and elected officials. This helps our candidates share with voters without paying for advertisements and media coverage and helps us become informed. With Ulection, we can discuss community issues with our elected officials so we are actively shaping the decisions that get made. By organizing things by location and topic we give people and organizations the tools to share what they want with the people who were meant to see it.

Position:
As a communications and public relations intern you will be contacting your local candidates, elected officials, and organizations. Ways to do this include through phone calls, emails, or meeting in person. This is a great opportunity for someone interested in getting their feet into the door in government and/or nonprofits.

Responsibilities

Requirements

This position requires the intern to be capable of communicating professionally and keeping records of the communications in a spread sheet. It is preferred that applicants are current college students who are interested in politics, government, and nonprofits.
