Internships

The Office of Congressman Pete Aguilar will have internships that run throughout the fall, spring, and summer semesters at both the D.C. and District Offices.

The hours are flexible to accommodate students’ course schedules but generally run from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Interns will have the chance to experience a congressional office’s fast-paced atmosphere and gain valuable work experience. This 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. District Interns may be assigned to assist in various constituent casework or work on community outreach and grants related projects. D.C. Interns will also have the opportunity to attend 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-33 and California are strongly preferred.
