Applications for the summer internship program are being accepted until March 1, 2015. Applicants will be notified by April 1, 2015.
In my Washington, D.C. office, internships run throughout the fall, spring and summer semesters. Our summer intern program is offered to rising juniors and seniors in college. College graduates may apply for spring and fall internships.
Although all internships in all offices are unpaid, students gain invaluable work experience. The hours are flexible to accommodate students' course schedules, but generally run 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
In Washington, intern responsibilities will vary. They will be asked to answer phones, research legislation, 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.
In my North Carolina office, interns may be asked to do a variety of things, including day-to-day office work such as answering phones and writing letters. In addition, interns may be assigned to assist in various constituent casework or work on district-based projects.
