Campaign Skills Translator






Created in partnership with the Democratic National Committee

There are a plethora of skills that we need to build winning campaigns. Some of those skills are quickly reflected in a resume built around campaign experience. The skills that win campaigns can come from any place or industry.

For Jobseekers. If you are someone looking to make a career change, then this tool will help you understand how your previous job experience can plug into campaigns. For those looking to change lanes or departments within campaigns, this tool also includes information about different departments where you might put your skills to work.

For Hiring Managers. If you are looking to hire for a critical role in your campaign, this tool will help you understand what skills are necessary for someone to be successful in that role. This resource can be a great starting point when drafting a job description or reviewing resumes.

Too busy to dive in now? Bookmark our one-pager of Post-Election Resources for 2022 Staffers so you can revisit all the tools whenever you need them.
