Washington, DC

Washington, DC internships run throughout the fall, spring, or summer semesters for college students. Although internships are unpaid, students gain invaluable work experience and exposure to the legislative process. Internship hours are  9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. when Congress is in session, and 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. when not in session, but hours are flexible to accomodate class schedules.

Intern responsibilites include administrative services, constituent correspondence and outreach, and legislative research. As a result, interns learn about the legislative process and the many other functions of a congressional office.

In my Pennsylvania office, interns may be asked to do a variety of things, including day-to-day office work such as answering phones, writing letters, and assisting with media clips. In addition, interns may be assigned to assist in various constituent case work or work on District-based projects of importance.

If you would like more information on Congressional Internships—please contact my office.
