Fall and spring term internship applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to Sam West (Sam.West@mail.house.gov).
In my Washington, D.C. office, internships run throughout the fall, spring and summer terms where students will gain invaluable work experience. The hours are flexible to accommodate students' hectic course schedules, but generally are 9 AM to 5 PM.
In Washington, interns' responsibilities will vary depending on the Congressional schedule, but may include conducting U.S. Capitol tours for constituents visiting D.C., helping answer phones and responding to constituent requests, attending Congressional committee hearings, legislative research and communications work. Candidates should be motivated and have a desire to learn about the legislative process and the many other functions of a Congressional office. Each intern will also be provided an opportunity to speak directly with the Member. Strong verbal and interpersonal skills required. Indiana ties a plus, but not required.
Indiana District Offices
In my Carmel and Anderson offices, interns will assist staff with a variety of tasks, including day-to-day office work such as answering phones, writing letters, assisting with media clips, and District-based projects. The hours are flexible to accommodate students' hectic course schedules, but generally are from 9 AM to 5 PM.
NOTE: Due to the high number of applicants for summer internships in all of our offices, we give preference to undergraduate students and those with ties to the 5th District. Graduate students will be considered for intern positions during the fall and spring semesters in any of my offices.
High school students are not eligible for internships in any of my offices. If you are a high school student and would like to get involved, I encourage you to sign up for my Youth Advisory Group here.
