Rep. Whitfield with intern Lucas Cayce of Hopkinsville.
In my Washington, DC office, 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 generally run 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 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. As a result, interns learn about the legislative process and the many other functions of a congressional office.
For questions or information on internships in my Washington, DC office during the academic year, please contact Robert Hankins via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (202) 225-3115.
Applications for summer 2013 are now being accepted and the deadline to submit an application is February 22, 2013.
