Internships at EMILYs List

Gain valuable political experience and help elect Democratic pro-choice women up and down the ballot! We offer internships spring, summer, and fall semesters in all of our departments. The EMILYs List Internship program is designed for people who have little to no professional political/campaign experience and who are interested in a career in politics.

In addition to daily work in their departments and attendance at staff events, interns participate in brown bag sessions, which gives them the opportunity to hear from our staff, learn about their professional history, and gain deeper knowledge about each department at EMILYs List. Our interns leave EMILYs List ready for life on the campaign trail after attending our signature Change the World training that will equip each intern with skills for beginning a career in campaigns.

Interns are paid at a rate of $17 per hour.

Interns have the flexibility to be fully remote or on a hybrid schedule at our DC headquarters. Hybrid interns will mutually agree on a weekly schedule for coming into the office with their respective supervisor.

Applications for the Summer 2024 Internship are now open! To apply, please click here to upload your resume and complete the application. If you are selected for an interview, you will be contacted directly. No calls or emails please. Thank you for your interest in EMILYs List!
