Congressman Huelskamp Accepting Applications for Interns

WASHINGTON — The Office of Congressman Tim Huelskamp is now accepting applications for an internship opportunity in the Washington, D.C., Salina, Dodge City, and Hutchinson, Kansas offices.

“I encourage applications for internships from college students or recent graduates who want to learn firsthand how Congress operates and how federal legislation affects Kansas,” Congressman Huelskamp said. “This is a unique experience in which to obtain greater understanding and involvement of the legislative process and constituent services.”

Interns may be asked to complete a variety of tasks, including day-to-day office work such as answering phones, writing letters, and assisting with media clips. In addition, interns may be assigned to assist with constituent casework or attend Congressman Huelskamp’s public events throughout the First District.

Students will be given flexible hours to accommodate their course schedules, but hours in the Kansas offices generally run from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. This is an unpaid internship.
