paid internships available with gubernatorial campaign

Please note: Contact person is Zach Bailey,

Gregg for Governor Campaign is seeking interns for the Summer and Fall Semesters. I've attached a brief description of the finance internship description below, however there are several different areas interns can work in. As a recent IU grad I wanted to make sure that other IU students were given this opportunity.

If possible can you pass this along to students and if the department has a email list (LISTSERV) of students in the department or a career services center please pass it along to them as well. Any interested students should send a resume and a cover letter to Zach Bailey at

 Hours are flexible, depending on the student's schedule and we are more than happy to work with interns who would like to get college credit for the internship. The internships do come with a monthly stipend as well.

It is based out of our Indianapolis Headquarters in Downtown Indianapolis.

 Internship Description:

The intern will assist the campaign staff in the Indianapolis, IN office of Gregg for Governor, the election campaign of former Democrat Speaker of the House John Gregg. He/She will support the campaign operations as needed, including but not limited to answering phones, assisting staff with research and administrative projects, preparing briefing materials for the John, supporting staff with call time, assisting staff with finance events, and database management.

Experience with NGP and vote builder (VAN) or similar databases a plus.

 Skills Needed:

Collegial and professional attitude; possess strong oral and written communication skills; quick learners; detail oriented. Familiarity with the Microsoft Office Suite and other computer programs and software. Ability to multi-task, and to run limited physical errands as needed.


 This internship is an opportunity to learn the processes of a substantial state wide campaign and fundraising operation. Interns will frequently interact with Senior staff and the candidate as they work directly out of this office.

 If any additional information is needed or if anyone has any questions  please don't hesitate to ask,  Zach Bailey  Gregg for Governor
