Campaign Workers

Experience, Skills, and Personality Traits

Although campaign workers need no formal experience to do their job, they bring a wealth of informal learning experiences and street knowledge to their job, including a grassroots interest in politics and current affairs. Campaign workers may have begun their interest in politics by playing a role in student government or a neighborhood civic organization. They may have witnessed, or even played a part in a political campaign that brought real change to their neighborhood. In short, they became "political junkies." Such individuals usually bring to their calling a skill set that includes speaking, listening, and writing ability; the ability to be aware of others' reactions and understanding why they react the way they do; and the ability to identify complex problems and find solutions after reviewing costs and benefits of each alternative answer. In their personalities, they tend to be outgoing in public, creative in finding solutions to problems, reliable, able to meet deadlines, open to change, tolerant of stress, and able to keep emotions in check.
