The Office of Congressman Rick Larsen (D‑WA‑02) is seeking to hire a full-time intern in the Washington, DC office for the winter.
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, working with federal agencies, 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.
Rick is serving his seventh term in the U.S. House of Representatives. He is a member of the House Armed Services Committee and the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, on which he serves as the Ranking Member of the Aviation Subcommittee. Rick also is the co-chair of the bipartisan U.S.-China Working Group, which educates members on U.S.-China issues.
If you would like to be considered for an internship, please email your resume, cover letter, and two references to Cara Sullivan at Matt.Renninger@mail.house.gov by November 15th, 2013.
