Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, our office is currently offering a virtual internship program. Internships run throughout the fall, spring, and summer semesters. The hours are flexible to accommodate students' hectic course schedules but generally run from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Due to this internship's virtual nature, these hours are flexible to accommodate students in either the Pacific or Eastern Time Zones.
Interns will have the chance to experience a congressional office's fast-paced atmosphere and gain valuable work experience. The virtual internship is an excellent opportunity for those interested in public service and the legislative process. Interns will assist with tasks, including answering phones, drafting constituent correspondence, and assisting with media clips. Also, interns may be assigned to assist in various constituent casework or work on legislative projects. Interns will also have the opportunity to attend virtual policy briefings and assist staff with legislative research.
Qualified applicants must possess excellent written and oral communication skills, professionalism, attention to detail, and the ability to function in a fast-paced environment. Ties to CA-31 and California are strongly preferred. Internships include a monthly stipend of $1,000. To apply, please email your resume, cover letter, and availability to Aguilar.Internships@mail.house.gov.
The deadline for summer submissions is April 16, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. PT. Interviews will be conducted over the following two weeks.
If you have any questions regarding the application process, please email Aguilar.Internships@mail.house.gov.
