People with all types of experiences, backgrounds, and interests can excel at this position. But the following traits are common among successful strategists:

  • You love to write: You have demonstrated experience and skill in high-volume writing roles for campaigns or nonprofits 
  • You've got a political gut: Clients trust you because they know you get it -- the politics, the context, the positions, and the issues that drive them 
  • You are organized: You find pleasure in guiding multiple people through dozens of tasks and assignments at once without ever missing a beat, and enjoy developing systems to ensure that nothing falls through the cracks
  • You love building relationships: Your communications in person or by phone and email aren't just about the next task, but also about growing a longterm rapport with clients, partners, and fellow team members 
  • You are curious: What's the newest digital organizing trend? How can we use today's news in our work? What's going on in a client's community?
