In my Washington, D.C. office, internships run throughout the fall, spring or summer semesters for college students. Work hours are flexible to accommodate a student's school schedule.
In Washington, interns' responsibilities will vary. They will be asked to answer phones, research legislation for the Member and legislative staff, attend hearings and briefings and draft responses to constituent letters on various issues before the House. As a result, interns learn about the legislative process and the many other functions of a congressional office.
In my District Office, interns may be asked to do a variety of things, including day-to-day office work such as answering phones, writing letters and assisting with media clips. In addition, interns may be assigned to assist in various constituent casework or work on district-based projects of importance.
Internships in both my offices are paid. If you would like more information about congressional internships, please contact my office.
