Become an Intern for the OCGOP

Ronald Reagan once said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” Through our internship program here at the OCGOP, you can do just. You can fight for freedom.

  • An internship looks great on your resume. It helps you stand out. The career market is becoming increasingly competitive, and an internship with us can help you land a job quicker after graduation. It shows employers that you already have the real world experience to handle the job you are seeking.

  • We provide great opportunities for networking yourself among local and state politics. You can meet anyone from mayor of any of the prestigous Orange County cities to a candidate running for Congress. You can find out about the key players behind Orange County politics and find out what it takes to survive in the field of politics. During your internship, you can begin making your professional connections in order to jumpstart you on your path to success. With your internship, you can receive references for future job applications.

Through our internship program, you’ll be able to effectively bridge the gap between what you’ve been learning in school and how it works in reality. And by applying classroom theory to real world situations, you’ll be able to effectively identify your skills and talents and work at strengthening them.

To apply for an internship, please send your resume to the Office Manager, Alice Kim, at alice@ocgop.org
