The Office of Congressman Tim Huelskamp is now accepting applications for internships for Summer 2012. Interested college-aged students are invited to apply to serve the people of the First District either in the Dodge City, Hutchinson, Salina, or Washington, D.C. office. In the Kansas offices, interns may be asked to do a variety of things, including day-to-day office work such as answering phones, writing letters and assisting with media clips. In addition, interns may be assigned to assist in various constituent case work or work on District-based projects of importance. In Washington, interns’ responsibilities will vary. They will be asked to answer phones, run errands, research legislation for the Member and legislative staff, attend hearings and briefings and answer constituent letters on various issues before the House. As a result, interns learn about the legislative process and the many other functions of a congressional office. Although all internships in all offices are unpaid, students gain invaluable work experience. More information – including the application – can be found at http://huelskamp.house.gov/internships. The application deadline for summer internships is March 15.
