Albany, New York - The Darius Shahinfar for
Congress campaign is looking for dedicated and motivated Iranian American summer
The campaign is accepting applicants for its summer internship program. Shahinfar is running for Congress as a Democrat in Upstate New York's 21st Congressional District.
As a proud first generation Iranian American, Shahinfar knows first hand what America means to people around our globe. He believes in an America that is able to both defend our security and our Constitution at the same time, an America that is safe and strong at home and respected abroad.
"I am humbled by how our campaign has been so warmly received nationally and I invite Iranian American students to participate as volunteers and interns in our campaign," said Shahinfar. "This opportunity allows students to play a constructive role in this election and get hands on experience on the strategies, policies, and procedures followed in a congressional campaign."
Interns and volunteers work on a variety of projects and assignments. Job duties consist of drafting articles for the campaign website, research, canvassing, phone calls, mailings, assisting with events, and other duties as assigned.
Campaign interns and volunteers will serve at the campaign headquarters in Albany, New York. Albany offers affordable housing, cultural attractions, entertainment events, great shopping facilities, public transportation, and is only 2½ hours north of New York City.
Full-time and part-time internships are available. Applications from undergraduate and graduate students with strong academic backgrounds and an interest in public service are welcomed. Eligible applicants must be able to work independently as well as respond to direction. Excellent written and communication skills and computer fluency (mainly MS Office and Windows OS applications) is necessary. Working knowledge of the electoral process is not required but considered an advantage in selection of the successful applicant(s).
Please submit a cover letter, resume, and references to Jessica Feil at email@example.com. Questions may be directed to 610-470-4435.
