Spring Internship
Office of Senator Amy Klobuchar
The Washington, DC office of Senator Amy Klobuchar is currently accepting internship applications for the 2017 spring session. An internship with the Senator’s office is a terrific chance for students to gain first-hand experience with both the legislative process and constituent services in the United States Senate.
Washington interns assist the office in a variety of legislative and administrative capacities. Interns support legislative staff by conducting policy research, attending briefings, and preparing for hearings. They are also asked to give tours of the U.S. Capitol to constituents and assist with constituent correspondence by letter, email, and phone. During your time in the office, you will learn your way around Capitol Hill and become familiar with the daily operations of a Senate office.
The spring internship runs from January to May and is available both part time and full time. If you will be attending classes while you are here we ask that you note that on your internship application, as well as what days and times you are available to work. We are happy to coordinate with educational institutions and students to develop internships for academic credit.
Materials required for consideration:
  • Cover letter
  • Resume
  • Three References
  • Short writing sample (from a previous internship or academic experience)
Internship application form (available at http://www.klobuchar.senate.gov/public/internships)

The deadline for application materials is November 9, 2016. Students and recent college graduates with ties to Minnesota are strongly encouraged to apply, but all applicants are welcome.
