Internships & Jobs

AFT Connecticut will post notices of job openings as they are available. Positions qualifying for union representation will include contractual wage scales, healthcare and retirement benefits set by collective bargaining agreement. The state federation is an Equal Opportunity Employer and women, people of color, immigrants and LGBTQ individuals are strongly encouraged to apply.

Our state federation’s political, organizing and communications departments frequently offer internship opportunities with academic credit and work experience for students enrolled in a two- or four-year college or university. Participants support AFT Connecticut’s legislative and labor agendas and their efforts have a meaningful impact on affiliated union members as well as their workplaces and communities.

AFT additionally offers internship opportunities in the research department at our national union headquarters in Washington, DC.
