Internships

I accept interns for work in my offices in Bellingham, Everett and D.C. Applicants should be eager to learn more about the legislative process, and want to be part of a hardworking team, dedicated to serving Northwest Washington.

Intern Program

Interns in my DC, Everett, and Bellingham offices have the opportunity to learn about day-to-day functions of the U.S. government and how my office helps constituents of the 2nd District of Washington state.

Interns research and write Congressional correspondence, help constituents find information, work with federal agencies, field constituent phone calls, and work with staff on research projects. In Washington, D.C., an intern’s duties also include attending committee hearings or briefings, responding to legislative inquiries from constituents, and a variety of other tasks.

Internships in my Everett and Bellingham offices are available during the summer, while DC office internships are available year-round.

Qualifications

Applicants must be undergraduate students who have completed at least one term, graduate students, or recent graduates. Preference will be given to applicants with strong ties to the 2nd District of Washington State. Please note that all internships are unpaid, but available for college credit if approved by the college or university. 

Interns should be interested in the legislative process and have excellent writing and research skills, a positive attitude, and a willingness to complete tasks as assigned. Interns should be willing to work at a variety of activities, and have the ability to work independently and as part of a team.
