Fall Internship for Rep Lynn Jenkins

We are currently accepting applications for internships at our office in Washington D.C. Working in a Congressional office can be a great way to get insight into the legislative process, make contacts in Washington, D.C., and meet a lot of great people. An internship also provides an excellent opportunity to see Congress in action. Interns gain practical work experience by undertaking a variety of administrative and legislative responsibilities in the office.

In Washington, interns' responsibilities will vary. They will be asked to answer phones, run errands, research legislation for Congresswoman Jenkins 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. We can also tailor the experience towards the intern’s interests.

We are looking for a bright college student or recent graduate who is interested in politics, policy or communications. The fall internship lasts from Sept. 3 – Dec. 14, 2018. An internship is great way to gain experience and possibly college credit.  Our interns are paid $1,200 a month during their internship.

To apply for an internship, please submit you information at https://lynnjenkins.house.gov/internships/
