Internships run throughout the fall, spring, and summer semesters for college students. Although internships in all offices are unpaid, students gain invaluable work experience. The hours are flexible to accommodate students' hectic course schedules, but generally run 8:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
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. Through this experience, interns learn about the legislative process and the many other functions of a congressional office.
