CONGRESSWOMAN LAUREN UNDERWOOD ANNOUNCES FALL INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES IN WASHINGTON, WEST CHICAGO, AND WOODSTOCK OFFICES

Congresswoman Lauren Underwood (IL-14) is delighted to announce fall internship opportunities in her Washington, DC, West Chicago, IL, and Woodstock, IL offices.

Internships are designed to offer students and recent graduates direct participation in public service through supporting our offices' 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.

Summer internships are available from mid-August through mid-December, with start and end dates tailored to accommodate an academic calendar year. Internship hours run from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on weekdays. Please note that interns are expected to work a minimum of 20 hours per week. A limited number of paid positions are available for internship applicants who are not sponsored by outside organizations.

To apply, please submit a single PDF including your resume, cover letter, and writing sample of your choice to IL14.Internship@gmail.com by August 1, 2019. Preference will be given to applicants with ties to the Illinois 14th.
