Washington, DC (KGWN) - It’s not too early to think about summer…internships
Enzi intern coordinator will be at UW job fair Feb. 18
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., is encouraging college students and graduates to apply for an internship in his Washington, D.C. office this summer. The deadline for applications is March 21.
Senator Enzi’s Internship Coordinator, Sarah Meier, will be at the University of Wyoming’s job fair on Tuesday, February 18. She will be there to answer any questions and to provide information about the internship application process.
An internship in Washington, D.C. offers experience in the direct operations of our nation’s government. Interns have the ability to network, develop job skills and gain knowledge to further their education and future career choices, according to Enzi.
Typical intern duties include giving Wyoming constituents Capitol tours and conducting research for legislative aides, in addition to administrative and clerical tasks. Interns also have the opportunity to attend committee hearings and lectures and observe floor proceedings.
Senator Enzi provides a monthly stipend for his interns and many colleges, including the University of Wyoming, offer school credit for internship programs. Senator Enzi encourages candidates to look into specific programs provided by their schools and take full advantage of their time in his office.
“Working as an intern in my office is a wonderful opportunity to see how government operates first hand,” said Enzi. “It is a unique experience that provides the chance to meet remarkable people, work on important projects and experience the nation’s capital.”
The summer internship for 2014 runs from May 28 to August 15. Priority is given to students and graduates from Wyoming, or those studying in Wyoming, who have achieved at least a sophomore status at an accredited university or college.
