Overview

Political consultants advise candidate and initiative campaigns at the local, state, and national level. Political consultants offer guidance to campaign leaders on almost all of their activities, including mass media planning and production, competitor research, fundraising, voter polling, and core campaign strategy.

Others with an interest in politics and international affairs choose risk consulting, which provides private sector clients with information, research, and advice about political or foreign policy issues (e.g. the likelihood of a law or regulation changing, or the stability of regional governments).  Examples of risk consulting organizations are Ergo, Eurasia Group, Cohen Group, Albright Stonebridge, and others.
