Find 2024 Congressional Internships
Congressional Industry & InternshipIf you want to make it big on Capitol Hill, a congressional internship is one of the best ways to kick start your political career. All US Members of Congress rely on interns to assist them and their campaigns, with opportunities available at both local and Washington, D.C offices. Whether you’re in the House or the Senate, congressional interns conduct research, assist constituents, and do administrative work, such as taking calls, writing letters, filing, and running errands. Before applying, you’ll want to have a stellar academic record and a background in community service and student government, as congressional internships are extremely competitive. Some good news, however: After years of interning for free, congressional interns now get paid.
Congressional Career Options & OutlookAs a congressional intern, you’ll build your network in this fast-paced, ambition-fueled field. Post-graduation, you’ll have the contacts to pursue a role as a full-time congressional staffer—and make no mistake, hiring managers tend to look to interns before anyone else for entry-level roles. Salaries vary widely across positions, but according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average government employee has a median annual pay of $51,340.
