Analysts are projecting that campaign spending in 2012 will hit $8B. That’s two billion more than spent during the 2010 election cycle. The political sector is proving to be practically recession proof and it’s also filled with career opportunities for women.

The Political Institute for Women is encouraging professional women to put their finance, marketing, public relations and management skills to use in pursuing lucrative careers in the political sector.
