Data Analytics Internship

Offered By: 
Governor Greg Abbott's Campaign
Job Location: 
Austin
Salary: 
Unpaid
Job Description: 
Texans for Greg Abbott, the re-election campaign for Governor Greg Abbott, is seeking new interns for our data analytics department. The data department is responsible for managing the voter file of Texans voters, keeping up-to-date records of who's registered to vote, who is likely to vote any given election and who they are likely to vote for. We work closely with and assist all other departments in providing them accurate data to reach out to voters, volunteers, and donors. As one of the largest campaign operations in the country, you will gain valuable insight on how a large-scale campaign is run. With the general election coming up, this position promises to be busy and informative for any prospective intern. We work heavily with Microsoft Excel and SQL Databases but will also work with other data software such as SPSS, Stata, Microsoft Access, JMP, and more. While data interns do have general intern duties from time-to-time such as making infographics or answering the phone, they will primarily work in a data-heavy environment, learning the ins and outs of Excel databases and formulas. If interested, they also have the opportunity to work with our extremely large databases on SQL. No previous experience is necessary but an interest in politics, political campaigns, data, and of course, Governor Abbott is. The internship is located at the Governor's campaign office in Downtown Austin near the State Capitol, not far from UT's Campus. If needed, parking is provided at the Capitol Visitor's Garage just a block away. We work with our interns individually to find a schedule that works best for them. It's a fun, rewarding internship that all our previous data interns have thoroughly enjoyed. Many even come back to intern for multiple semesters!
