The American Conservative Union is hiring Spring Semester CPAC interns!
We have four departments—Events and Conferences, Development, Communications, and Government Affairs. Each department has different responsibilities, but regardless of your position, you will be directly involved in our major projects, such as CPAC, State and Congressional Ratings, and our social media presence.
This is a paid internship, and additional hours may be required due to the amount of preparation that goes into executing our annual conference.
The ACU Internship provides a unique perspective of politics, allowing interaction with Members of Congress, media personalities, and thought leaders in the conservative movement. You will gain hands-on experience as part of a supportive and collaborative team, all sharing the goal of spreading and energizing the conservative movement in America.
