Intern responsibilities include, but are not limited to, answering phones, conducting Capitol tours, sorting incoming mail, attending briefings, conducting legislative research, and performing other legislative tasks as necessary.
Candidates should possess excellent written and oral communication skills; a strong attentiveness to detail; an ability to work in a fast-paced environment; and an eagerness to learn about the political process and congressional affairs. Candidates with a strong interest in foreign affairs, defense, terrorism, and/or Israel affairs will find additional insight into these issues as part of the internship, but is not required. We welcome candidates with any policy interests.
We strive to provide a meaningful and purposeful internship for successful candidates. This position will help you understand the inner workings of Capitol Hill in a way that is impossible to get otherwise. You will finish your internship with in-depth knowledge about an issue that you care about. If you are a student, we are happy to work with your college or university to arrange for academic credit.
Successful interns will be self-starters, take and listen to direction, and be willing to work both independently as well as part of a team environment. Send a resume, cover letter, and a very brief statement on policy areas that interest you. Please compile these documents into a single PDF or Word document and email to FL06.firstname.lastname@example.org.
In our Florida offices, interns will familiarize themselves with the unique needs of FL-06 and the work that our local offices perform for constituents. These tasks include constituent correspondence through answering phones, writing letters, and assisting with local media clips. In addition, interns may be assigned to assist with constituent casework or assist on District-based projects of importance.
