U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., is encouraging college students and graduates to apply for an internship in his Washington, D.C. office this fall. The deadline for applications is June 25.

The internship offers experience in the direct operations of our nation’s government. Interns have the ability to network, develop job skills and gain knowledge to further their education and future career choices, according to Enzi.

“Interns in my office gain valuable experience by learning the inner workings of the Senate and participating in the legislative process firsthand,” said Enzi. “Along with playing a vital role in the office, those who participate in an internship also have access to a vast number of opportunities in Washington D.C., such as participating in a diverse array of events and meeting some remarkable people.”

Typical intern duties include giving Wyoming constituents Capitol tours and conducting research for legislative aides, in addition to administrative and clerical tasks. Interns also have the opportunity to attend committee hearings and lectures and observe floor proceedings.

Senator Enzi provides a monthly stipend of $1,600 for his interns and many colleges typically offer school credit for internship programs. Senator Enzi encourages candidates to look into specific programs provided by their schools and take full advantage of their time in his office.

The fall internship for 2014 runs from September 2 to December 19. Priority is given to students and graduates from Wyoming, or those studying in Wyoming, who have achieved at least a sophomore status at an accredited university or college.
