Testimonials: “Interning for Murphy Nasica and Associates has been such a rewarding opportunity. It has put me on the right track for my career and I’m only a sophomore in college! The possibilities are endless and the skills and relationships obtained from the company are priceless.” -Anyssa Campbell-Espinoza, Class of 2017 “Understanding the electoral politics and the science behind effective grassroots campaigning requires the direction of seasoned and successful political consultants. As a MNA intern I had the opportunity to work with such professionals in a fun and demanding work environment. At MNA, you’ll play a critical role in helping make political consulting great again.” -Will Dearmon, Class of 2015 “I decided to further explore campaigning after working at the Texas Capitol during the 85th Legislative Session. My internship with Murphy Nasica introduced me to a field that perfectly suits both my interests and skill set as an intern in both the Creative and Operations departments – I even discovered skills I never knew I had, such as my knack for opposition research. My decision to apply to the Summer Internship Program changed my career path entirely. I am thankful for my time at the Capitol, but I’m so glad that I decided to explore a different side of politics that allows me to communicate to voters on the ground.” -Farish Mozley, Class of 2017
