In my Washington, DC office, internships run throughout the Fall, Spring and Summer semesters for college students. 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, run errands, research legislation for the Member and 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.
The Fall 2022 application deadline for internships is August 22. Please submit a resume, cover letter and writing example to: email@example.com.
