Deadline approaching to apply for Statehouse internship

STATEHOUSE (Oct. 16, 2019) – Time is running out to apply for an internship with the Indiana House of Representatives. Each year, House Republicans invite college students and recent graduates across the state to participate in our internship program. This paid opportunity is a great way for young Hoosiers to learn more about our state government, develop valuable skills and build professional relationships. The deadline to apply is Oct. 31, and interested students should submit their applications as soon as possible.

Positions are open to college sophomores, juniors, seniors, graduate students and recent graduates of all majors, and no previous political or government experience is necessary. The positions are full-time, Monday through Friday, lasting from January through mid-March. The program has positions in many different areas, including legislative operations, communications and media relations, policy, and fiscal policy. 

Interns receive biweekly compensation of $750 and can earn course credit through their college or university. They also have the opportunity to apply for a $3,000 scholarship to be used toward their undergraduate or graduate degree.

This program is a chance for students to gain valuable hands-on experience and apply their skills in a real-world setting. Not only does the internship program provide ample opportunities for students to grow professionally, but they also get paid while having the chance to earn college credit. Not all internships pay interns for the work they do, so this program sets itself apart from the rest.

Their time at the Statehouse is spent doing real and meaningful work, and when they leave, they have a professional portfolio that can be used to showcase their skills for their next internship or job interview.

This is a fantastic program for students looking to gain skills and network, and I hope to see local students taking advantage of this unique learning experience. The deadline to apply is Oct. 31, and more information can be found at Interested students should hurry, as interviews are conducted on a rolling basis and positions are already being filled.
