Internships

Capitol Hill

  

HOUSE AND SENATE INTERNSHIPS, FALL 2017

In the Washington, DC offices, internships run throughout the fall, spring, or summer semesters for college students. Although most internships in congressional offices are unpaid, students gain invaluable work experience. The hours are flexible to accommodate students' schedules and they may be willing to work with candidates available only part-time, but generally run 9:00 am to 6:00 pm when Congress is in session, and 9:00 am to 5:00 pm when not in session.

In Washington, interns' responsibilities will vary. They may be asked to answer phones, run errands, give Capitol tours, enter data, research legislation for the Member and legislative staff, attend hearings and briefings, and answer constituent letters on various issues before the House; tasks vary from office to office. As a result, interns learn about the legislative process and the many other functions of a congressional office.

Preference is typically given to applicants who have some connection with the congressman's state (i.e. attended school, grew up in, currently resides in the respective state, etc). We strongly encourage you to consider applying to states to which you have a connection.

Applicants are more likely to be selected by legislators within the respective applicant's state. If you would like to apply to an office not listed, please email jobs@yaliberty.org with the name of the legislator for whom you would like to work, along with your resume and a cover letter.
