The Indiana House of Representatives offers full-time, paid internships to those looking to gain a hands-on work experience. This internship program is a unique opportunity open to college sophomores, juniors and seniors, graduate students, law-school students and recent college graduates.
Interning with the House will expand students’ professional skills as they learn more about Indiana’s government. All majors are welcome to apply, and no previous political or government experience is required. I encourage those who can commit to working full-time in Indianapolis from January through April of next year to apply. Session is a busy time of year for lawmakers, and a typical work day begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m., with some late evenings filled with debate on the House floor.
As an Indiana House Republican intern, students will typically be paired with a full-time staffer and work with a group of legislators. There are five departments looking for interns:
This internship program takes place during the spring semester and offers a bi-weekly compensation of $700 and an opportunity to earn college credit. I recommend this prospect to those who want to gain professional experience, strengthen resumes, as well as learn more about state government, politics and the legislative process.
The application deadline is Oct. 31. To learn more about these internships and to apply, visit www.indianahouserepublicans.com/internship. If you have any questions, please reach out to my office at 317-232-9833 or email@example.com.
