In the Washington, DC office, internships run throughout the fall, spring or summer semesters for college students. Although all internships in all offices are unpaid, students gain invaluable work experience. The hours are flexible to accommodate students' hectic course schedules, but generally run 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. when Congress is in session, and 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. when not in session.
In Washington, DC, interns' responsibilities will vary. They will be asked to answer phones, run errands, research legislation for the Member and legislative staff, attend hearings and briefings, and answer 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.
The deadline for Summer 2020 Internships is April 15, 2020.
In my Oklahoma office, interns may be asked to do a variety of tasks, including day-to-day office work such as answering phones, writing letters, helping staff with projects, and assisting visitors. Internships could lead to possible college credit with approval from your university. If you have any questions about the internship program, please reach out to my District Intern Coordinator, Ashley Wells at 918-935-3222.Required fields are followed by *.
