Majority Hunter Executive Director Evan Stewart recently wrote an article for Campaigns & Elections highlighting the 2018 jobs landscape for GOP operatives.
As we all turn the page on the 2016 election cycle, Evan and others are seeing a wealth of opportunities across not just campaigns and elections but also advocacy campaigns and organizations as well as the private sector.
“Moving beyond the traditional government relations career track, the ability to thrive in a high-pressure environment, make decisions quickly, and take on a leadership role are traits business leaders are noticing campaign professionals bring to the table.”
