Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler’s office is currently accepting applications for internships in the Washington D.C. and the Vancouver offices. This is a great opportunity for college students, recent graduates, military veterans and others who are interested in an insider’s view of the legislative process and the daily operations of a congressional office.
Typical intern responsibilities in the D.C. office include: leading tours of the U.S. Capitol, fielding calls from constituents, administrative tasks, attending congressional hearings and briefings, and assisting staff in a variety of projects including research, writing and editing.
Intern tasks in the Vancouver office include: fielding calls from constituents, administrative tasks, assisting staff in a variety of projects and events, sorting and delivering mail, and entering data.
All candidates should possess great oral and written communication skills, be highly motivated, demonstrate knowledge of computer applications, maintain a positive attitude and show initiative.
Applicants must be able to make a commitment of at least 10 weeks. Those with Washington state or Pacific Northwest ties are preferred, but all may apply. Internships are unpaid; however, if academic credit can be awarded through your school, the office will be happy to assist in that process.
To apply, please submit the following materials to Craig.Wheeler@mail.house.gov:
- Resume with three references
Do not hesitate to contact the office if you have any questions regarding our internship program.
