Spring Internship Opening: Gerry Connolly (VA, 11th District)

Hannah Guffey

Working in a Congressional office can be an incredibly rewarding and exciting experience. An internship provides an excellent opportunity to gain valuable experience, and observe first-hand how our government operates.

Interns in the Washington office draft constituent correspondence, attend briefings and Congressional hearings, and prepare memoranda for me and members of my staff. Interns in the District Office conduct research, assist with constituent casework and draft correspondence. Interns in both offices assist with answering phones, data entry and general office systems operations. Interns are an important part of my staff.

Interns are accepted throughout the year on a part-time basis, and priority is given to college-level students from the 11th District. Selection is based on an applicant's general office and computer experience, interview, and a short writing sample. Please submit a cover letter, resume and a brief writing sample to the office of your choice.

The application deadline for the spring semester is December 10th. Please email your information to:
