Internships

Working in a Congressional office can be an incredibly rewarding and exciting experience. An internship provides an excellent opportunity to gain valuable experience, and observe first-hand how our government operates. Interns gain practical work experience by undertaking a variety of administrative and legislative responsibilities in the office.

Interns in the Washington office draft constituent correspondence, attend briefings and Congressional hearings, and prepare memoranda for me and members of my staff. Interns in the District Office conduct research, assist with constituent casework and draft correspondence. Interns in both offices assist with answering phones, data entry and general office systems operations. Interns are an important part of my staff.

Internships are available expressly for the purpose of furthering educational objectives, therefore they are unpaid and usually awarded to graduate and college-level students.

Application Process

There is no application deadline. Interns are accepted throughout the year on both a full and part-time basis. Priority is given to applicants from Missouri's 7th Congressional District, although all interested persons are encouraged to apply. Selection is based on an applicant's general office and computer experience, interview, and a short writing sample. Please submit a cover letter, resume and a brief writing sample to the office of your choice.
