Enzi accepting fall internship applications
Jun 3, 2013 - By Andrea Novotny, Staff Writer
U.S. Sen. 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 28.
The internship offers experience in the direct operations of the federal government. Interns have the ability to network, develop job skills and gain knowledge to further their education and future career choices, Enzi said.
"An internship in my office is all about opportunity," Enzi said.
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.
Enzi provides a monthly stipend for his interns and many colleges typically offer school credit for internship programs.
The fall internship for 2012 runs from Aug. 26 to Dec. 20. 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.
Individuals interested in an internship should apply online at www.enzi.senate.gov.
