How to become a successful politician
For professional political careers, the level of education is critical. In the view of the society the politician has to be not just knowledgeable in all aspects of life of the state, region or municipality, but also the academically educated.
Successful politicians often have a legal or economic education. For the benefit of any policy will be understanding of the fundamentals of management, business, property management, international relations, and sociology.
The presence of academic degrees always characterizes any politician well. This gives an understanding that a person finds a balance between practice and a scientific approach.
Starting a political career: social movements
Political career often begins with social activities. Active participation in civil initiatives allows you to understand the basics of advancing ideas and achieving goals. However, it is a good school for developing skills of interaction with peers and a wide range of the public.
Social activities often brings people together because of their common interest, pushing them to a team discuss ways to achieve goals. Such "brainwaves" might be useful in the future, when, being already in the political arena, you will need to occupy a niche of their work. For example, deputies of different levels, in addition to his work on interaction and implementation of assistance to voters with electoral districts, take part in specialized committees – construction, budget, social Affairs, etc. the Principle of division of MPs on the committees, helps determine which of the MPs have more experience in specific fields of activity. For example, in the State Duma, each member can belong to only one Committee. This is done in order to focus the maximum capacity of parliamentarians on the specific activity.
Starting a political career: party work
The traditional start is to work in the party. Do not underestimate the importance of a correct definition of the party for entry. The transition from one party to another is not prohibited, but in the hands of opponents, a touch of biography, as the change of the party's "color" may ultimately play a cruel joke.
So don't hurry with the decision on which party to join. You should examine each of the regional offices: to read the Charter software platform, candidates, electors to the elected representatives of the party. Much valuable information can be gleaned in an interview with the heads of regional branches, and also the first persons of parties at the Federal level.
All this makes it possible to understand how effective the work on each specific political platform will be.
Communication with the press and voters
A politician is a public profession. A good politician can and know how to properly interact with the public. First we need to get a General idea about the level of life of the inhabitants of a particular municipality and region in which it consists. In focus – key issues (roads, transport, social security), social sentiment (the existence of an active civil cell or a passive society). Based on this, you should form a block of statements for discussion with colleagues in a social movement or party.
If the program will be supported, you will need media support that in the absence of a specialist, you can do yourself is to invite journalists to a press conference, give interviews to private media, appear on TV or just to send a detailed press release. A high degree of being mentioned in the press will benefit both the party and the person in particular.
