What is the CHECKPOINT?

At CHECKPOINT Political Consulting, we have been bringing graduates, young professionals and experienced political professionals together with the most exciting consultancies from political Berlin since 2005.

Your entry into political consulting

Do you want to get to grips with actors, processes and content in the political arena not only in theory, but also in practice? Does the thought of analysing political or communicative issues make your heart beat faster? Are you passionate about mobilising people, developing political strategies and making a big difference? In short:

Politics is your passion and you want to be in the thick of it?

Then CHECKPOINT is the right place for you. Because as a policy advisor you are right in the middle when the political agenda is drafted and implemented in the social dialogue. At CHECKPOINT Political Consulting you have the chance to take a look behind the scenes, network with many interesting people and get to know the different career paths in political consulting.

What awaits you

  1. After a joint welcome, our CHECKPOINT partners introduce themselves in a Pecha Kucha format.
  2. In the speed dating process, you make initial contacts with individual agencies that match your previously stated preferences.
  3. Afterwards, we continue in small groups. Together with other participants, you will be assigned to an agency and get an intensive insight into the entry into the industry and the work between politics, business and society. You can also test your skills as a political advisor in a workshop.
  4. Representatives with high seniority leave the meeting room. Now you can talk to your colleagues in an informal setting and ask questions that are still burning under your nails.
  5. The event ends with a relaxed round of games and offers you the opportunity to exchange ideas with the representatives of all the agencies in person via direct (video) chats.
