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' hectic course schedules, but generally run 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
In Washington, responsibilities will vary. Interns will be asked to answer phones, run errands, research legislation, and attend hearings and briefings. As a result, interns learn about the legislative process and the many other functions of a congressional office.
In my North Dakota offices, interns may be asked to perform a variety of tasks, including day-to-day office work such as answering phones, assisting state staff, and writing letters. In addition, interns may be assigned to assist in various constituent case work or work on District-based projects of importance.
