INTRODUCTION TO THE PROGRAM
The Axiom Apprenticeship program was designed to encourage and educate graduates and near-graduates who are interested in conservative politics with real world experience. Each apprentice will participate in crafting political strategy of our client campaigns by supporting various projects. As an Axiom Apprentice, you will get hands on campaign experience and learn from some of the best political minds in the industry. Axiom’s Apprenticeship program ultimately gives students of all backgrounds the unique opportunity and resources to learn from the ground floor what it takes to run a successful campaign in the highly contested world of politics.
Each apprentice will be vetted and assigned a position in a campaign or an Axiom-affiliated company based on their personal strengths and interests. They will be expected to relocate temporarily to a city where they will be partnered with a mentor to guide them through their apprenticeship. Each Axiom Apprentice will be pushed outside of their comfort zone and expected to work outside of the normal 40 hour work week, but will gain invaluable knowledge and experience into the world of politics.
Each Axiom Apprentice will receive a monthly stipend and are able to apply for class credit so long as their universities allow it. It is up to the student to request and obtain the necessary paperwork required to receive class credit.
Applicants from all over the country will be considered for the Axiom Apprenticeship program, but preferences will be given to 10 target schools, including three Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Target schools were chosen based on geographic proximity to strategic Axiom offices as well as historic relationships with the schools, such as alumni on Axiom staff. The HBCUs are an important part of the recruiting process because at Axiom we believe that for the GOP to be a truly successful modern party it is imperative that we develop operatives from minority communities and provide them with the resources and opportunities to be successful in GOP politics.
