Internships

Washington, D.C.

Internships with my Washington, D.C. office run throughout the fall, spring, and summer semesters for current undergrad or graduate students. These internships provide invaluable work experience and contribute significantly to the necessary business of a fast paced office. Internships are eligible for a paid monthly stipend. 

Intern responsibilities vary, but include answering phones, sorting mail, researching legislation for the Member and legislative staff, attending virtual hearings and briefings, and drafting press releases and 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. Additionally, the office encourages and will facilitate networking opportunities for interns and staff members. Final determination regarding whether this internship will continue to be remote or held in-person will be made by late August, with a start date of September 7, 2021.

Internship hours are flexible to accommodate students’ course schedules, but generally run from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m EST. All interns will be expected to work D.C. hours, and applicants must be able to commit to working at least 20 hours a week. Colorado ties are a plus!
