Congressman Gary C. Peters, representing Michigan’s 9th District, has openings for unpaid interns this spring in his Washington, DC office. Interns in the Washington office will attend briefings and hearings, draft constituent correspondence, and conduct tours of the Capitol building. Interns also will answer phones as well as perform data entry and general office duties. Internships are available expressly for the purpose of furthering educational and career opportunities; therefore they are unpaid and usually awarded to college-level students.

Though there is no application deadline, interested students are encouraged to apply early as the positions are limited. Internships are currently being offered for the months of March through May on both a full and part-time basis. Selection is based on an applicant's educational background, work experience, interview, and writing samples. Applicants should be willing to work both individually and as part of a team, and be able to thrive in a dynamic, high-energy work environment. Interested applicants should email a cover letter, resume, unofficial transcript, references and two writing samples to angeli.chawla@mail.house.gov. Those with ties to Michigan are strongly encouraged to apply.
