Internships

Each semester, my office offers internships for college students to gain a first-hand experience of the legislative process while serving the constituents of Indiana's Fourth Congressional District. Please find the information below for internships in both the Washington, DC office and the Danville, Indiana District Office.

 

Washington, DC Internship

In the Washington, DC office, internships run throughout the fall, spring, or summer semesters for college students. Responsibilities may include speaking with constituents over the phone, processing and preparing responses to correspondence, providing Capitol tours, conducting legislative research for the Member and senior staff, and assisting communications staff with press releases and social media. 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.


District Office Internship

In the Danville District Office, interns will have the opportunity to learn about constituent services and community outreach conducted from a Congressional District Office. Interns may be asked to assist with a variety of tasks, including answering phone calls, processing mail, and directing constituents to proper offices and agencies.
