Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi seeks motivated, flexible, and detail-oriented interns to serve in his Schaumburg, Illinois district office this fall.
Ideal candidates will possess exceptional written and oral communication skills, a high degree of professionalism, as well as a strong interest in public service. Congressional internships are open to all majors and designed for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as recent graduates with an interest in public service.
Congressman Krishnamoorthi’s district office internship provides comprehensive exposure to the workings of a congressional office, constituent services, outreach, and communications. This internship will help students gain important interpersonal, communications, and drafting skills by working directly with our staff and constituents.
Interns perform a variety of duties including day-to-day office work such as answering phones, writing letters, and greeting constituents. Interns will also conduct research, draft memos and other written documents, help resolve constituent problems, help plan community events, attend meetings and events with the Congressman, and much more.
District ties are a plus, but not required. Starting and ending dates are flexible, although prospective interns should be able to commit at least 10 hours per week. This is an in-person internship.
