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. 

Intern responsibilities vary, but include answering phones, 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. The office also actively encourages and will facilitate networking opportunities for interns and staffers. Final determination regarding whether this internship will continue to be remote or held in-person will be made by early May.

The hours can be 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 local hours. Applicants are welcome to apply regardless of geographic location due to the potential for this internship to remain remote. Colorado ties are a plus!
