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.firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
