Thank you for your interest in my Congressional Internship Program! We are looking for highly qualified college students or recent college graduates to serve as interns in our Washington, DC and Maryland District Offices. Interns are an integral part of the team and are given substantial opportunities to learn and grow in a fast-paced and active office. Although all internships in all offices are unpaid, students will gain invaluable work experience.
In my Washington, DC office, internships run throughout the fall, spring, and summer semesters. The hours are flexible to accommodate students' hectic course schedules, but generally run 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. when Congress is in session, and 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. when not in session. We offer both Full and Part-Time internships throughout the year.
In Washington, interns' responsibilities will vary. Our office offers both Press and Legislative Internships. Interns will be asked to answer phones, run errands, research legislation for the Member and legislative staff, attend hearings and briefings, answer constituent letters on various issues before the House, and perform a variety of other duties. As a result, interns learn about the legislative process and the many other functions of a congressional office first hand.
