After completing that apprenticeship, she first worked as a saleswoman and purchasing assistant, before later starting her own business, together with her husband.

She commenced her political career in Neubau, Vienna's 7th district, where she joined the district council in 1987 and later became FPÖ district party chairwoman. In 1996, Monika Mühlwerth became a member of the Federal Council for the FPÖ Vienna, and in 2001, she returned to Vienna municipal politics to take up the post of Vice-President of the Vienna School Board.

In 2006, Mühlwerth re-entered the Federal Council and remained a member until the end of 2020. In 2009, she was also elected chairperson of the Freedom Party group in the Federal Council, a position she retained until she departed from the Federal Council.
