Other Requirements: Interview, resume
Availability: Internship availability limited
Salary: Positions are unpaid
Interns work in the office of the Supervisor or within the district. Positions are usually given to students and are unpaid. Interns work with the Supervisor and his staff. By observing firsthand, they develop political awareness and job skills.
Interns assist with a wide variety of administrative tasks. They distribute correspondence, handle mail and manage phone calls. They work on special projects and assist in planning events. Interns must attend meetings, and briefings to remain informed about current legislative issues. Interns complete research as needed and report findings to the Supervisor and his staff.
Interns work not only for the Supervisor, but also for their staff members assisting in their daily tasks. Because it is a learning position, interns are exposed to a variety of tasks and must be flexible in their expectations.
