Enzi accepting applications for summer internship program
Mar 23, 2012 - Staff
U.S. Sen. Mike Enzi is encouraging students and graduates from all backgrounds to apply for a summer internship in his Washington, D.C., office. The deadline for applications is April 5.
"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 have the chance to meet some remarkable people, work on projects and experience the dynamic of living in Washington, D.C."
The internships, which include hands-on, individualized activities, offer experience in the heartbeat of the nation's government. Interns are able to network, develop crucial job skills and cultivate meaningful experiences to further their
education and career goals. Interns will have the opportunity to give U.S. Capitol building tours, write policy and hearing summaries, prepare legislative memos, conduct research for legislative aides, observe floor proceedings and attend committee hearings and lectures.
Interns receive a monthly stipend to defray the cost of living in Washington, D.C., and may also be able to coordinate receiving college credit for the internship. Priority is given to students from Wyoming or those studying in Wyoming.
The summer 2012 internship runs from June 4 to Aug. 24, 2012.
Applicants should have achieved at least sophomore status at an accredited university or college. Individuals interested in an internship with Sen. Enzi's office should apply online. T
he application is available at www.enzi.senate.gov. Select the "Students" tab and click on "Internship Information." For additional information, contact the Internship Coordinator Evan Baker at (202) 224-3424 or Intern_Coordinator@enzi.senate.gov.
