In my Washington, D.C. office, internships run throughout the fall, spring and summer semesters for college students. The hours are flexible to accommodate students' course schedules, but generally run 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. when the House of Representatives is in session, and 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. when not in session.
In Washington, intern responsibilities include answering phones, running errands, researching legislation, attending hearings and briefings, and answering constituent inquiries on various legislation and current events. As a result, interns learn firsthand about the legislative process and the many other functions of a Congressional office.
