Spring internship opportunities available for Enzi's office
Oct 27, 2013 - By Alejandra Silva, 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 in the spring. The deadline for applications is Nov. 14.
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, according to Enzi.
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 of $1,600 for his interns, and many colleges typically offer school credit for internship programs. Enzi encourages candidates to look into specific programs provided by their schools and take full advantage of their time in his office.
The spring internship for 2014 runs from Jan. 6 to May 23. 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 with Enzi's office should apply online at www.enzi.senate.gov. Select the "Students" tab and click on "Internship Information."
