In the Washington, DC office, internships run throughout the fall, spring or summer semesters for college students. The hours are flexible to accommodate students' hectic course schedules, but generally run 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. when Congress is in session, and 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. when not in session.

In Washington, DC, 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.

The office of Congressman Ted Budd (NC-13) is now accepting internship applications. Intern responsibilities include, but are not limited to, answering phones, sorting incoming mail, conducting Capitol tours, attending briefings, conducting legislative research, and performing other administrative tasks as necessary. Successful candidates will have excellent written and oral communication, attention to detail, and possess the ability to work in a fast-paced environment. Internships are unpaid, but serve as an excellent first step towards a career on Capitol Hill. Interested applicants should send a resume and cover letter to Elizabeth at elizabeth.dews@mail.house.gov with "Internship" in the subject line in addition to submitting the application below.
