Congresswoman Underwood (IL-14) is delighted to announce spring internship opportunities in her West Chicago, Woodstock, and Washington, D.C. offices. The internships will provide an opportunity for students and recent graduates to directly participate in public service though supporting Underwood’s constituent engagement and services, administrative responsibilities, and research.
Interns' responsibilities will vary. They will be asked to answer phones, assist with correspondence, coordinate and conduct tours, research legislation, assist with constituent casework, and attend hearings and briefings on various issues. Qualified candidates must be friendly, organized, flexible, and possess the ability to multitask in a fast-paced environment.
Spring internships are available from January through mid-May, with start and end dates tailored to accommodate an academic calendar year. A limited number of paid positions are available for internship applicants who are not sponsored by outside organizations.
Preference will be given to applicants with ties to the Illinois 14th.
The deadline to apply is Monday, November 4, 2019.
