Charlotte In 2012 Internship

CHARLOTTE—The Charlotte in 2012 Convention Host Committee is seeking college students and recent graduates for summer internships with the Host Committee for the Democratic National Convention. The internship experience is one of the core components of hospitality and logistics for the 35,000 guests coming to North Carolina for the 2012 Democratic National Convention.

“I can’t think of a better civics lesson, or a better way for a young adult to be a part of this historic event, than to contribute first hand to the success of the convention and the city of Charlotte,” said Dan Murrey, Executive Director of Charlotte in 2012. “We are grateful for the support we have already received from our Fall and Spring intern corps and thrilled to open the opportunity to more interns.”

Charlotte in 2012 is committed to crafting a genuinely fun and informative experience for our volunteers, guests of the Charlotte region, and the community’s residents. Host Committee interns will have the opportunity to gain a first-hand experience of what happens behind the scenes in preparing for a major political convention. The interns will have opportunities to participate in special events and hear from pre-arranged speakers during their internship term.

How to apply

Interns must be enrolled at a post-secondary academic institution (e.g. Community College or Accredited University) or no more than one year of graduation from an undergraduate or graduate program. The deadline to apply for the summer intern program is Wednesday April 18, 2012 and the program begins May 21, 2012. For most opportunities, interns must be available a minimum of 20 hours per week. Ideal candidates will be able to stay in the Charlotte Metro area through the week of the Convention, September 3-7.
