Internships

Washington, D.C.

Internships with my Washington, DC office run throughout the fall, spring or summer semesters for college students. These internships provide invaluable work experience and contribute significantly to the necessary business of the office. Interns are eligible for a paid monthly stipend. 

Internships for Fall 2020 will be conducted remotely and interns’ responsibilities will vary. They will be asked to answer phones, research legislation for the Member and legislative staff, attend virtual hearings and briefings, and draft 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. The office actively encourages and will facilitate networking opportunities for interns and staffers to accommodate for the virtual nature of the internship. 

The hours can be flexible to accommodate students’ course schedules, but generally run from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m EST. Due to the remote nature of this internship, applicants are welcome to apply regardless of geographic location but they will be expected to work local hours. Colorado ties are a plus!

To apply for a Fall 2020 internship with my Washington, DC office, please send a resume, cover letter and a brief writing sample to Mackenzie Fallt at Mackenzie.Fallt@mail.house.gov with “[Your Last Name] - Fall 2020 Legislative Internship” in the subject line no later than August 2nd, 2020.
