November 4, 2009
Washington, D.C. Ė U.S. Senators Mike Enzi and John Barrasso, both R-Wyo., are encouraging students and graduates from all backgrounds to apply for internships in their Washington, D.C. offices this spring. The deadline for applications with Enziís office is Nov. 19 and the deadline for applications for Barrassoís office is Nov. 13.
"An internship in my office is rich with opportunity and provides students with firsthand knowledge and experience," Enzi said. "Interns are an important part of the office. They also have the chance to meet some remarkable people, work on projects and experience the dynamic of living in Washington, D.C."
"An internship in my Senate office provides Wyoming students with an invaluable opportunity to observe and participate within the United States Senate," Barrasso said. "I encourage all who are interested to apply."
The internships, which include hands-on, individualized activities, offer experience in the heartbeat of the nationís government. Interns are able to network, develop crucial job skills and cultivate meaningful experiences to further their education and career goals. Typical intern tasks include giving Capitol building tours, writing policy or hearing summaries, preparing memos, conducting research for legislative aides, observing floor proceedings and attending committee hearings and lectures.
Interns receive a monthly stipend to defray the cost of living in Washington, D.C. and can also coordinate receiving college credit for the internship. Priority is given to students from Wyoming, or those studying in Wyoming.
