Campaign Intern

Hello,

I have the opportunity to intern for a campaign for the House of Representatives or for a Senate Campaign. My question is two-fold:

1. I intend to major in CS or Business, would being a campaign intern affect my chances at all? Would colleges view it is useless/unimportant?

2. The situation is that the person running for House is very likely to win the election and the person running for Senate is very likely to lose. Would there be a bigger benefit interning for a winning house campaign compared to a losing senate campaign?

Thanks!

For your first question it definitely won't be seen as useless or unimportant as any internships look great on college applications. Sure it might not be as beneficial as an internship in your chosen field but it will still be very good and help. For the second question I don't think there would be much difference if they win or lose but if you can choose I would suggest picking the winning side.
