Find 2019 Congressional Internships in Washington, DC

Are you looking for a Congressional internship in Washington? Congressional internships are the best way to bridge the gap between going to school and landing great job. Internships can help provide valuable work experience by learning the ropes from more experienced professionals. At the end of your internship, you’ll have relevant experience to help you decide if starting your career in the field of your internship is the right choice for you. It also helps that 7 out of 10 internships result in a full time job offer, which means interning in Washington can also serve as the foundation to landing a full time job in that city after graduation.

Congressional summer internships in Washington are pretty common, but don't expect to be in charge at the end of your internship! Usually, you’ll have to work from the bottom up, but interns are much more likely to get a job offer from the employer they’re interning with. If you decide to intern at a smaller company, you’ll sacrifice the name prestige for other benefits, such as having an opportunity to see your projects go from start to finish. Simply gaining Congressional experience is essential in order to provide value and creativity to the team.
