Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet is accepting internship applications from undergraduate students, recent graduates and graduate students for his Washington, DC and Colorado offices. In addition to his Washington office, internships are available year round in the following Colorado locations: Colorado Springs, Denver, Durango, Fort Collins, Grand Junction and Pueblo.
Washington interns attend hearings and briefings, research legislative issues, meet with Congressional officials and staff, conduct U.S. Capitol tours and draft correspondence.
Colorado interns support Constituent Advocates as they meet with and assist Coloradans with help navigating the federal government. Interns also represent Senator Bennet at local meetings and events, research legislative issues and draft correspondence.
“Interns play an important role in my offices, providing support to my staff and me as we work to serve Coloradans,” said Bennet. “The internship programs in our Colorado and Washington offices provide opportunities for young Coloradans to gain hands-on experience in the day-to-day work of Congress and to learn more about the significant issues facing Coloradans and all Americans. The internship provides a strong foundation for any young person who will soon enter the job market, especially those who might be interested in a career in public service. I encourage anyone who is interested in helping serve Colorado to apply.”
Internships are available on either a full-time or part-time basis. This is an unpaid position. Interested students and recent graduates should apply online at https://www.bennet.senate.gov/services/internships/. The deadline to apply for an internship in Washington for the 2013 Spring semester is December 7, 2012. Spring internships begin in December and January.
For internships in one of Bennet’s Colorado offices, applicants will be considered on a rolling basis and can apply at any time.
