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 in the summer. The deadline for applications is March 15. Senator Enzi’s Internship Coordinator, Sarah Meier, will be at the University of Wyoming’s job fair on Tuesday, February 26. She will be there to answer any questions and to provide necessary materials for the internship application process.
An internship in Senator Enzi’s D.C. office 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. 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 for his interns and many colleges, including the University of Wyoming, 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.
“Our past interns gained valuable work experience and created friendships and memories that lasted far beyond their time in the office,” Enzi said. “I encourage anyone who is interested to apply as soon as possible.”
