STATEHOUSE (Oct. 20, 2017) – Applications to intern with the Indiana House Republicans during the 2018 legislative session are due Oct. 31, according to State Rep. Sharon Negele (R-Attica).
The House Republican Internship Program offers paid, spring-semester internships at the Indiana Statehouse in downtown Indianapolis. These are full-time positions, Monday through Friday, lasting from January through mid-March. According to Negele, college-level students participating in the internship program work one-on-one with state legislators while developing valuable skills and connections for a professional career.
“Through our internship program, students have the chance to gain hands-on experience while learning more about how laws are made in Indiana,” Negele said. “In addition to getting paid, interns can earn academic credit, build their resumes, and make connections that could open the door to a career. Interested students and recent graduates should apply for this incredible opportunity before the Oct. 31 deadline.”
College sophomores, juniors and seniors, graduate or law students, and recent graduates of all majors are eligible. Students can apply for internships in a variety of areas, focusing on legislative, communications, video production, policy, fiscal policy and technology. Along with getting paid $750 every two weeks, students can earn academic credit through their college or university.
When submitting an application, students must also include an official transcript, resume and two letters of recommendation. Negele said top applicants will demonstrate strong writing skills, have a positive attitude and be willing to work in a fast-paced environment.
