Internships

Washington, DC

In my Washington, D.C. 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 are flexible to accommodate students' course schedules, but generally run 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. when Congress is in session, and 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. when not in session.

In Washington, intern 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 legislation and current events. As a result, interns learn about the legislative process and the many other functions of a Congressional office.

In my South Carolina District offices, interns may be asked to do a variety of things, including day-to-day office work such as answering phones, writing letters, and assisting staff members throughout the day. In addition, interns may be assigned to assist in various constituent case work or work on district-based projects of importance.
