Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., is encouraging students and graduates from all backgrounds to apply for an internship in his Washington, D.C. office this fall. The deadline for applications is July 17.
“An internship in my office is all about opportunity,” 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 Washington, D.C.”
The internship, which includes hands-on, individualized activities, offers experience in the heartbeat of the nation’s government. Interns are able to network, develop crucial job skills and cultivate meaningful experiences to further their education and career goals, according to Enzi.
Other typical intern tasks include giving Capitol building tours, writing policy or hearing summaries, preparing memos, conducting research for legislative aides, observing floor proceedings and attending committee hearings and lectures.
“Our past interns have gained valuable work experience and created friendships and memories that last far beyond the four months in the office,” Enzi said. “I encourage anyone who is interested to apply as soon as possible.”
The fall 2009 internship runs from Aug. 31 to Dec. 18. Interns receive a monthly stipend to defray the cost of living in Washington, D.C. and can also coordinate receiving college credit for the internship. Priority is given to students from Wyoming, or those studying in Wyoming, who have achieved at least sophomore status at an accredited university or college.
