Washington D.C. Internship Opportunities

Oct 18, 2012
Frankly Speaking

I am currently urging all college-aged students in Oklahoma’s Third Congressional District to apply for the spring 2013 internship in my Washington, D.C. office. I believe internships are a great way for students to learn how to be successful when they step out of school and begin a full-time job. In the past, I have had many bright students intern in my office, and I look forward to having more in the future.

Working as an intern in the U.S. House of Representatives offers many great learning experiences. Students who intern in my office will learn about the federal government and how a congressional office is run. They will assist staff members with general administrative tasks, accompany staffers in committee meetings and events, and also give Capitol tours to Third Congressional District constituents. Interns will also assist staff with legislative and constituent projects. In addition, many colleges offer class credit for the student’s internship.

The application deadline for the spring 2013 session is Sunday, November 25, 2012. The internship will run from January 2013 until the end of the student’s spring semester. Students from Oklahoma’s Third Congressional District who are available Monday through Friday during their spring 2013 semester are preferred. To apply, please complete the internship application found at, /internships, and email two letters of recommendation to brad.morris@mail.house.gov. If you have further questions, please contact Brad Morris in my Washington D.C. office at (202) 225-5565.
