In my Washington, DC office, internships run throughout the fall, spring or summer semesters for college students. These internships provide invaluable work experience. The hours can be flexible to accommodate students’ course schedules, but generally run from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Legislative internships and press internships are available, and interns’ responsibilities will vary. They will be asked to answer phones, run errands, research legislation for the Member and legislative staff, attend 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.
