STATEHOUSE (Oct. 16, 2018) – College students and recent graduates seeking an internship with the Indiana House of Representatives must submit their applications before the Oct. 31 deadline, according to State Rep. Martin Carbaugh (R-Fort Wayne).

House internships are paid positions during the legislative session lasting from January through April. Carbaugh said while employed full time at the Statehouse in Indianapolis, interns can develop valuable skills while working one-on-one with state legislators and staff. 

“The networking opportunities alone make this internship an invaluable experience,” Carbaugh said. “This is a great chance for students to gain a firsthand look at possible career paths. A majority of our legislative staff are former interns.”

College sophomores, juniors and seniors, graduate students, and recent graduates of all majors are eligible to apply. Internship positions are available in a variety of departments including legislative, communications and media relations, policy or fiscal policy.

When applying, students must also submit an official transcript, resume and two letters of recommendation.
