see what our former interns have to say!

I had never been involved in politics before, but I was able to take in something new every day and had a great experience working in the office! During my internship, I got the opportunity to work on a State Senate campaign, which helped me learn more about field work and GOTV efforts in campaigns. - Nico, Fall 2023 Intern

As an international student, being able to get an up-close look at American politics in action was an incredible experience, and I highly suggest the internship program to anybody who is passionate about getting into politics and growing their experience. - Wais, Fall 2023 Intern

Who are we?

Pocket Aces is a Democratic political consulting firm based in Northern Virginia. We are a full service firm specializing in helping Democratic campaigns and causes tell a persuasive story. We help campaigns with both general strategy and media production. 

what are we looking for?

Successful members of our team will be creative, collaborative, intellectually curious and have a passion for politics up and down the ballot. We value self-starters who have a strong sense of humor and can handle a fast-paced environment. You do not need to have a politically curated resume, we encourage diverse and non-traditional applicants to apply. We are looking for the right person, not the right resume.

  • An appreciation for the campaign process from the inside.

  • An understanding of the political tactics required to win an election.

  • Media outreach, research, fundraising, and persuasion skills.

  • Networking opportunities with Democratic elected officials and organizations.

I would definitely recommend interning at Pocket Aces. Every day is different, and you get to work on interesting projects in different areas each week. In college I'm studying economics, but was able to get some experience in social media comms, fundraising, and event planning over the course of my summer internship! - Kayra, Summer 2023 Intern

In my time at Pocket Aces, I got to practice event planning, media outreach, and donor research. I was able to attend the Netroots Nation conference in Chicago, and helped plan a fundraiser where I got to staff Speaker Emerita Pelosi! Pocket Aces gave me a summer experience I will never forget, and it gave me the chance to work with high profile clients in order to build my professional network! - Bailey, Summer 2023 Intern

I enjoyed the opportunity to intern at Pocket Aces, and was able to learn about politics first-hand in a high-speed environment. During my internship I joined a State Senate campaign field team for the last few weeks leading up to the primary election, and had an incredible experience working on a campaign and meeting new friends! - Lucy, Summer 2023 Intern

During my internship, I was able to put my graphic design skills to use on campaign walk-cards, websites, and social media graphics for elected officials! It was great to be able to apply my skills and pick up experience in other areas of political work. Anybody who is interested in working across departments and thinking outside of the box would love Pocket Aces! - Ava, Summer 2023  Intern

I loved my internship experience at Pocket Aces! I was able to work on creating social media content, campaign merchandise, and learn how to build a website. I was able to interface directly with elected officials, and got to meet both of Virginia's U.S. Senators, and our current and former Governor! Interning at Pocket Aces helped me figure out what I wanted to do in the political world. Highly recommended! - Jack, Summer 2022 Intern

Interning at Pocket Aces was a great entry into politics. I was able to gain a lot of experience through my work on multiple successful state, local, and federal races, and I acquired applicable skills and insights for my future career. - Nate, Summer 2021 Intern

Pocket Aces gave me the opportunity to contribute to substantive work which not only made a difference for our clients and their causes, but also allowed me to explore different aspects of campaigns and make connections which will help me with my future career. - Kennedy, Summer 2021 Intern
