Summer Internship in Senator Klobuchar's D.C. Office

The Washington office of Senator Amy Klobuchar is currently accepting internship applications for the 2012 summer session. An internship with the Senator’s office is a terrific chance for students to gain first-hand experience with both the legislative process and constituent services in the United States Senate.

Interns assist the office in a variety of legislative and administrative capacities.  Interns support legislative staff by conducting policy research, attending briefings, and preparing for hearings. They are also asked to give tours of the U.S. Capitol to constituents and assist with constituent correspondence by letter, email, and phone.  During your time in the office, you will learn your way around Capitol Hill and become familiar with the daily operations of a senate office.

The summer internship runs from the end of May or early June through August.  If you will be attending classes while you are here we ask that you note that on your internship application, as well as what days and times you are available to work. We are happy to coordinate with educational institutions and students to develop internships for academic credit.

Materials required for consideration:
