A student-led panel on political science internships will highlight the myriad of career possibilities that exist for undergraduates. The panel will be held on Thursday, Oct. 13, at 7:30 p.m. in the Sanford Room of the Warren Hunting Smith Library.
On the panel will be five students who participated in internships this summer and who will talk about their various experiences involved in campaigns, the media, and with national committees.
Gideon Porter ’12 worked as an intern for Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). Kees Nordin ’13 lent his talents as an intern on the election Campaign of Governor Steve Beshear (D-KY). Shane Samuel ’13 spent his summer with FOX5-TV and the NYC Department of Buildings as an intern. Caroline Spruill ’12 interned at the Center for American Progess in Washington, D.C. and Sarah Tanzer ’13 will share her experience as an intern with the Republican National Committee in Washington, D.C.
“It is wonderful for students to learn of the many opportunities available to them within the realm of political science,” says Director of the Salisbury Center for Career Services and Professional Development Brandi Ferrara. “I think that discovering these fascinating and vastly different internships through the eyes of their classmates will make the idea of an internship something both accessible and of greater relevance to the students in attendance.”
