In my Washington, D.C., office, internships run throughout the Fall, Spring or Summer semesters for qualified college juniors and seniors, or recent college graduates.
Duties include: answering phones, running errands, researching legislation for the Member and legislative staff, conducting Capitol tours, attending hearings and briefings, and answering constituent letters on various issues before the House. As a result, interns learn about the legislative process and the other functions of a congressional office.
Applicants should possess a great work ethic, proficient communication skills, and strong writing skills. Arkansas ties are ideal, but are not required. Interested candidates should e-mail their cover letter and resume to Destiny Robertson at Destiny.Robertson@mail.house.gov.
Internship program for the Fall of 2020 has been canceled.

Interested candidates should e-mail their cover letter and resume Sherrie Mitchell at Sherrie.Mitchell@mail.house.gov.
