Internships

For current college school students, my office is proud to offer unpaid Congressional Internships. The Internship Program offers students a real-life glance at how the federal legislative branch operates and gives students practical work experience. Internships are available at my offices in Washington, Warner Robins, and Tifton offices.

WASHINGTON, DC

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 are flexible to accommodate students' hectic course schedules, but generally run 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. when Congress is in session, and 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. when not in session.

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.
