During the fall program, interns can gain firsthand experience in the lawmaking process, work side by side with experienced full-time staff, and play an integral part in the daily operations of the office.

A typical day for Congressional interns includes welcoming constituents and guests to the office, researching legislation for the Congressman and policy staff, and answering constituent calls and letters on various issues before the House.

To apply, email a resume and cover letter to [email protected] specifying which office(s) you are interested in working in. Candidates applying for the Washington, D.C. office must be enrolled in a college or have a college degree to be considered. Individuals with ties to Maine are preferred.
