Washington legislative interns will work closely with the Congressman’s legislative team to conduct research, draft letters, and policy memos. Responsibilities also include answering phone calls, drafting constituent correspondence, leading tours of the U.S. Capitol (pending COVID restrictions), and related administrative work. Interns will have the opportunity to attend briefings, hearings, and other legislative events. As a result, interns learn about the legislative process and the many other functions of a congressional office.
In my two District offices (Lakeview and Portage Park), interns are exposed to the inner workings of a congressional district office and what it takes to support the over 710,000 constituents we represent. The internship program is primarily based out of the Portage Park office. Responsibilities include acting as the first line of support for constituents both over the phone and in person, assisting with outreach efforts in the community, drafting letters, and conducting district research. In addition, interns may be assigned to assist with constituent casework and work on District-based projects of importance.
*Academic credit or pay stipend will be available to all candidates.
