Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., is encouraging college students and graduates to apply for an internship in his Washington, D.C. office this spring. The deadline for applications is November 14.
The internship offers experience in the direct operations of our nation’s government. Interns have the ability to network, develop job skills and gain knowledge to further their education and future career choices, according to Enzi.
“An internship in my office is rich with opportunity and provides students with firsthand knowledge and experience,” Enzi said. “Interns are an important part of the office. They also have the chance to meet some remarkable people, work on projects and experience the dynamic of living in Washington, D.C.”
Typical intern duties include giving Wyoming constituents Capitol tours and conducting research for legislative aides, in addition to administrative and clerical tasks. Interns also have the opportunity to attend committee hearings and lectures and observe floor proceedings.
Senator Enzi provides a monthly stipend of $1,600 for his interns and many colleges typically offer school credit for internship programs. Senator Enzi encourages candidates to look into specific programs provided by their schools and take full advantage of their time in his office.
The spring internship for 2014 runs from January 6 to May 23. Priority is given to students and graduates from Wyoming, or those studying in Wyoming, who have achieved at least a sophomore status at an accredited university or college.
