Internships are available in both my Washington, D.C. and District offices. Applicants should be eager to learn more about the legislative process and want to be part of a hardworking team dedicated to serving Washington’s 8th District. Interns will work in a fast-paced Congressional office, gaining valuable experience and knowledge of the United States Congress.

In Washington, D.C., intern responsibilities will include greeting constituents, answering constituent phone calls, supporting staff with administrative tasks, conducting legislative research, assisting with constituent correspondence, and other miscellaneous tasks as assigned. Interns in Washington, D.C. will also have the opportunity to lead tours of the U.S. Capitol, as well as attend hearings and briefings for the legislative staff.

In the District office, interns will assist with a variety of tasks, including day-to-day office work such as answering phones, writing letters, and assisting with media clips. District office interns may also help with constituent casework or other District-based projects of importance.
