DescriptionThe House Republican Policy Committee (RPC), a House Republican leadership office on Capitol Hill, is currently accepting applications for a policy analysis internship for fall 2016. Interns will assist with research relating to the production of the Legislative Digest, a publicly available policy product which provides a synopsis of every bill on the House floor. They will also assist with the distribution of the Legislative Digest and basic data management, in addition to preparation and set-up for RPC hearings, staff briefings, and member meetings.
Attention to detail and a willingness to learn about a variety of legislative issues are crucial to a successful internship. Strong analytical, written and oral communications skills are also necessary, as is the ability to work effectively in a team.
Interns will have the opportunity to attend additional Congressional hearings, workshops, and briefings, depending on their interests. Additionally, interns may assist with the Chair’s personal office, on an as needed basis. Here, interns may interact with constituents through phone calls, mail, and tours.
This position offers a great educational opportunity for anyone interested in working on Capitol Hill or in the federal government. College students pursuing a bachelor’s or master’s degree in political science, economics, or policy analysis degree are encouraged to apply, as is anyone interested in government.
This position is unpaid, though academic credit may be available through your school. Full-time and part-time internships are available. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis; however, internship openings are limited, so apply early. Applicants should submit a resume and a public policy-related writing sample.
