Our office offers part- and full-time internships for students who are in college or a similar post-high school training program, or who have just graduated. Internships generally run in the Spring (Jan-May), Summer (May-Aug), and Fall (Sep-Dec). We offer needs-based stipends to students who are Pell Grant eligible. Due to the pandemic, our staff is teleworking and so, too, are our interns. We provide a laptop and cell phone and are committed to ensuring that interns have the same positive experience as if we were physically in the office.
Ideal applicants are self-starters who bring a customer service mindset and a passion for community service, who are intellectually curious, who don’t mind spending a lot of time on the phone, and who write well. Responsibilities range from helping constituents, doing research and drafting memos for our legislative staff, assisting our communications team, to staffing the Congresswoman in hearings or meetings. We offer interns the opportunity to see Congress up close and from the inside. Prior volunteer, leadership, and work experience are a plus. Ties to PA-06 are also a plus.
Due to a high volume of applicants, you will likely only be contacted if you are selected for an interview. This office is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate based on race, religion, disability, age, ethnicity, national origin, sex, gender, LGBTQ identification, family status, or military status. Women, people of color, and other members of traditionally underrepresented communities are strongly encouraged to apply.
