Hiring A Polling Intern

Get a chance to be deeply involved in TPM’s 2014 election coverage by helping to run TPM’s PollTracker.

Details after the jump:

Description: The TPM Polling Internship is a paid internship program in which interns get a crash course in polling and in how a digital media news organization works from the ground up. We’re taking applications for a polling internship to begin immediately. Former TPM interns and fellows have gone on to jobs at The New Republic, The Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, The New York Sun, The Verge, The Atlantic, The New Yorker, The Washington Post and more.

TPM polling interns are involved in every aspect of PollTracker and have a hand in everything we do. They work alongside our PollTracker team to monitor new polling, enter data, detect trends, break news, and write stories.

The polling intern will receive a stipend. The position is based in TPM’s New York City office.

Rising seniors, recent graduates, and graduate students, as well as relevant course of study, preferred. Qualified applicants can receive academic credit.

To apply, send an email to talk at talkingpointsmemo.com with a cover letter, resume, writing sample, and two references. Include the subject line: “Job App: Polling Internship.”
