PAID INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITY:

The D.C. Office of Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) seeks Press/Legislative interns for the upcoming 2022 Winter/Spring term. The office has two types of internships available: an in-person internship and a remote, research-focused internship.

In-person intern responsibilities will include drafting social media posts for the Member’s official social media pages (including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram), designing graphics, attending hearings and briefings (either in person or virtually from the office), researching legislation for both the Member and legislative staff, drafting constituent letters on the Member’s behalf, interfacing with constituents and visitors, staffing the front office, and potentially conducting tours. To be considered for this position, candidates must show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination, and if hired, agree to follow additional precautionary measures, such as mask-wearing and regular sanitizing.

Remote intern responsibilities will similarly include drafting social media posts, designing graphics, attending virtual hearings and briefings, and drafting constituent letters on the Member’s behalf, but there will be a heavier focus on conducting legislative research for both the Member and legislative staff.

All interns are paid $15.00 per hour for a minimum of 15 hours/week and maximum of 30 hours/week unless the intern is receiving a stipend from an external organization in relation to their internship. The hours can be flexible to accommodate students' schedules but generally run 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

To apply to intern in the DC office, please send your resume, a short writing sample (no more than 2-pages), 2 sample tweets on a current event, a sample graphic (optional) and your dates of availability to Emma.Preston@mail.house.gov no later than December 1st, 2021.

Due to the high volume of applicants, a response is not guaranteed. The Office of Rep. Ro Khanna is an equal opportunity employer. We do not discriminate based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, age, or socio-economic status. All are welcome and encouraged to apply.
