Washington, D.C. – As students begin to plan for their summer and fall semesters, U.S. Senator Tim Johnson (D-SD) is now accepting applications for summer and fall internship positions in his Washington, DC, Sioux Falls, Rapid City, and Aberdeen offices. Senator Johnson is also accepting applications for internships with the Senate Banking Committee.
"This is an excellent opportunity for college students to experience the United States Senate and Washington, DC," Johnson said. "These internships provide students with a chance to gain insight and first-hand knowledge of the federal government."
The Washington, DC internship program matches interns' interests to South Dakota and federal issues and provides a firsthand opportunity to experience a wide-range of office duties. Interns may attend hearings, research issues for projects, and work with the office administrative staff. Students may also apply to intern in the press shop for Johnson. Press interns work on tracking media coverage, organizing clips, writing releases, and other various press shop activities, as needed.
Internships in Johnson’s state offices will provide students with in-depth knowledge of current issues affecting the state and the opportunity to work directly with South Dakotans. An intern in a state office will assist staff with special events, constituent casework, and administrative functions.
Johnson is Chairman of the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs, and is accepting applications for internships in that Committee. Interns with the Banking Committee will assist the Chairman’s professional staff with administrative, press, legislative, and correspondence duties. Additional information about Committee internships is available at http://banking.senate.gov
