Congressman Bob Turner is looking for Summer interns for his Washington D.C. office, as well as his Brooklyn and Queens offices, available to start in May. Duties include but are not limited to assisting legislative staff, answering telephones, greeting visitors, conducting tours of the Capitol, researching legislative issues, writing letters to constituents and working with our mail database system. There will also be opportunities to experience Washington DC and cultivate your interest in American government by attending briefings, hearings, and classes.
Qualified candidates should possess excellent organizational and communication skills, should have a positive attitude, and a strong work ethic. Although internships are unpaid, our office is happy to fill out any necessary forms for students to receive credit at their respective college or university. Brooklyn or Queens ties are strongly preferred but not necessary.
Start and end dates are negotiable and both part/full-time positions are available. Interested applicants should send resume and brief cover letter summarizing their interest in working for Representative Turner to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Summer Internship” as the subject.
