In my Washington, DC office, internships run throughout the fall, spring or summer semesters for college students or recent graduates. Candidates must complete a full year (two semesters) of college for consideration. Although all internships in all offices are unpaid, students gain invaluable work experience. The hours are flexible to accommodate students' hectic course schedules, but generally run 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. when Congress is in session, and 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. when not in session.
In Washington, 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 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.
Thank you for your interest in an internship with the Office of Congresswoman Lois Frankel. To apply for an internship, please send a cover letter and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. In your cover letter, please indicate your weekly availability.
Internship applications are accepted until spots have been filled. If you have any questions, please call Bradley at 202-225-9890.
