Are you a proud Democrat looking for a challenging volunteer opportunity? Do you enjoy writing and sharing your opinion on politics? Then we want you to join our team!
All Things Democrat (ATD) has been a part of the online Democratic community since 2006. Over the years, we’ve been fortunate to have worked with many talented writers. Many of them have moved-on to paid writing positions. If you intend to have a career in politics, journalism, or working for an issues-based organization of interest to lefties, having experience writing for ATD will make your resume stand-out.
And yes, you can work for a Democratic campaign or the Democratic Party while you are a volunteer at All Things Democrat (see FEC regulations summary on blogging).
These are volunteer positions that you can work around your schedule from home, school, or anywhere there’s an internet connection. We are seeking reliable, dedicated volunteers – serious inquiries, only.
- Writers – Democratic Party News: Seeking proud Democrats to post positive, weekly updates on Democratic Party news and events from around the country. Writers will post a minimum of one, unique post per week (no cross-posting), preferably more. Must have some writing or blogging experience or relevant educational background in journalism, political science, business, history or language. Volunteers will use their own equipment (computer and phone) to perform duties, working from home with all research done online, by email, or by phone.
- Writers – Current Political News and Issues: Seeking strong, dedicated, self-motivated Democrats to strengthen our existing team of writers. Must have an above-average interest in politics and enjoy sharing opinion and analysis of the issues with your fellow Dems. This position requires experience writing for blogs, online magazines, newspapers or other relevant experience or relevant educational background. Writers will post a minimum of one, unique post per week (no cross-posting), preferably more. Volunteers will use their own equipment (computer and phone) to perform duties, working from home with all research done online, by email, or by phone.
- Research Assistants: We have several entry-level Research Assistant positions for self-motivated Democrats to collect updates on Congressional and Gubernatorial races in the 2013-2014 election cycle. RAs will collect information online or by phone. Most RAs will not publish, so blogging experience is not necessary. RAs will be in frequent contact with campaign staffers (by email or phone) and will represent All Things Democrat, so the position requires professionalism and excellent interpersonal skills. Seeking dedicated, self-motivated individuals with good time management skills and the ability to meet deadlines. Ideal candidates must be able to work independently with minimal supervision. RAs will use their own equipment (computer and phone) to perform duties; work from home. Estimated time commitment: 1-3 hours per week for most RAs. More hours if you would like additional responsibility.
Politics is a contact sport. We write partisan posts that are in support of Democrats and in fierce opposition to our political opponents. The volunteer positions we offer are only for those interested in taking-on the radical right in the political war of words.
We already have several talented volunteers, but we’re looking for more to add to the team. So, are you ready to help us support Democrats?
Interested candidates should send us a note via our Contact page.
Be sure to include as much information about yourself as possible, including the volunteer position you’re interested in and your background, education or experience, and when you can start. Serious candidates, only.
