|Working in a Congressional office can be an incredibly rewarding and exciting experience. An internship provides an excellent opportunity to gain valuable experience, and observe first-hand how our government operates. Interns gain practical work experience by undertaking a variety of administrative and legislative responsibilities in the office.
Interns in the Washington office draft constituent correspondence, attend briefings and Congressional hearings, and prepare memoranda for me and members of my staff. Interns assist with answering phones, data entry and general office systems operations. Interns are an important part of my staff.
Housing is not provided, however the intern coordinator will supply information on a variety of housing options. In addition, a stipend of $1,800 per month is paid to help defray the costs of living in Washington, D.C.
There is no application deadline. Interns are accepted throughout the year on both a full and part-time basis. Priority is given to applicants from Wyoming, although all interested persons are encouraged to apply. Selection is based on an applicant's general office and computer experience, interview, and a short writing sample.
