Congresswoman Jahana Hayes (D-CT) is pleased to announce paid spring internship opportunities in her Washington, DC and Waterbury, CT offices. Internships are designed to offer students and recent graduates direct participation in public service through supporting our offices' constituent engagement and services, administrative responsibilities, and research. Interns' responsibilities will vary depending on the office in which they work. They will be asked to answer phones, assist with correspondence, coordinate and conduct tours, research legislation, assist with constituent casework, develop the Congresswoman’s community outreach, and attend hearings and briefings on various issues.
Qualified candidates must be friendly, organized, flexible, and possess the ability to multitask in a fast-paced environment.
Spring internships are available with start and end dates tailored to accommodate an academic calendar year. Internship hours follow the floor schedule in Washington, DC, and run 9:00-5:00 PM on weekdays in Waterbury, CT.
Please note that interns are expected to work a minimum of 20 hours per week. Payment is limited to those interns who are not sponsored by outside organizations.
