Paid Internship (Rep. Omar)

Representative Ilhan Omar’s Washington D.C. office is looking for a fall intern to start immediately. 

Interns in Rep. Omar’s office are compensated at a rate of $15/hour, unless sponsored by an outside organization also compensating at a rate of $15/hour. 

Hours are flexible, but generally run from 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday. 

Intern responsibilities in the Washington, D.C. office will include: 

  • Answering phones
  • Sorting mail 
  • Researching legislation 
  • Attending briefings and hearings
  • Writing legislative memos
  • Drafting constituent letters
  • Administrative work and other tasks as assigned

Interns will work with staff to serve the constituents of Minnesota’s 5th Congressional district. Our goal is to provide each intern with a meaningful experience that will enhance their understanding of the legislative process. 

Please send a resume, cover letter, short writing sample, and three references to MN05.internships@mail.house.gov. Rep. Omar’s office accepts all applications for internships, though ties to Minnesota’s 5th are a plus. Applicants from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
