In my Washington, D.C. office, internships run throughout the fall, spring, and 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 5:00 p.m.
In Washington, interns' responsibilities will vary. They will be asked to answer phones, research legislation, assist my 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.
If you are interested in pursuing an internship in my Washington, D.C. office please send your application along with a resume and cover letter to Mr. Wesley Brooks, my Staff Assistant who coordinates our Capitol Internship Program. You may also email your application directly to Wes or reach him with any questions you may have at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please know that internships in my Washington, D.C. office are highly competitive. Because of high demand and limited office space, I'm sorry to say that I am forced to turn away many highly qualified candidates each program cycle.
In my Florida 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 constituent case work or work on District-based projects of importance.
