Washington, DC Congressional Internship

In my Washington, DC office, internships are financially compensated and typically run throughout the fall, spring, and summer terms for college students to gain invaluable work experience.  The hours are flexible to accommodate students’ hectic course schedules but generally run 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM at least three to four days a week. Interns’ responsibilities and duties will vary, but will generally be tasked with legislative and administrative duties.  The legislative duties range from researching legislation for the Member and legislative staff, attending various hearings and briefings on important legislative issues, and assisting constituents.  Administrative duties include answering phones, greeting constituents and office visitors, leading guided tours of the U.S. Capitol, and working closely with staff on a variety of projects. Interning in Washington, DC provides a unique, first-hand experience of the legislative process.  Interns get the chance to learn about all the exciting aspects of our nation’s Capital while being able to absorb the many functions of a Congressional office.

Washington, DC internship applications are being accepted through November 30 for the Spring 2022 session.
