Internships

Internships run throughout the fall, spring or summer semesters for college students. Although all internships in all offices are unpaid, students gain invaluable work experience. The hours are flexible to accommodate students' hectic course schedules, but generally run 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. when Congress is in session, and 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. when not in session. 

Please submit a resume, cover letter, and writing sample (maximum of 3 pages) to apply for an internship. Please submit these materials to Max.Coker@mail.house.gov if you would like to intern in our DC office, or to Priya.Robb@mail.house.gov if you would like to intern in our Colorado Office. Applications received by the posted deadline will be given preference, and applications received late will be considered as space allows. 

In Washington, DC, 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, give tours of the Capitol, 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. Interns also have the opportunity to work as a press intern, assisting our communications staff with press releases, news clips, attend press conferences, and other communications-related tasks.

If you would like more information about our Congressional Internship program in Washington, D.C. please contact Max Coker at Max.Coker@mail.house.gov, and submit your application materials by the posted deadline to be given priority consideration.
