 If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via e-mail or at 202-225-2605. Thank you, Cara Sullivan

 The Office of Rep. Rick Larsen (D‑WA‑02) is seeking to hire a full-time intern in the Washington, DC office for the fall.

Candidates should have an interest in and knowledge of the legislative process and American political system, possess excellent communication and writing skills, and be able to work independently. Interns play an important role in the congressional office, and perform tasks that make the legislative process work. They will be responsible for projects such as researching and writing memos, assisting legislative staff in committee hearings, and fielding constituent phone calls and other requests. Other duties include leading Capitol tours and providing staff with general office support.

During their term, interns are encouraged to attend briefings and committee hearings of personal interest. Those with ties to Washington State or the 2nd Congressional District are strongly encouraged to apply.

While the internship is unpaid, we are happy to work with schools that offer students academic credit for the internship. If you would like to be considered for an internship, please email your resume, cover letter, and two references to Cara Sullivan at by July 15, 2013.
