U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren, R-Plano, announced he is accepting applications for summer 2017 internships in his Washington, D.C., office, Campton Hills office and forthcoming McHenry office.
Positions are unpaid and will run approximately from May through August. Academic credit may be available and schedules can be flexible for those with classes or other obligations. Applicants from the 14th Congressional District are preferred. Applications are due Friday.
Hultgren’s district includes part of northeastern DeKalb County, including Sycamore.
“During my time in Congressman Hultgren’s office, I wrote letters to concerned constituents, conducted policy research for staff members, gave tours of the Capitol to fantastic people from the 14th District and drafted a short speech that the Congressman delivered on the House floor,” said Tebo Molosiwa, a recent intern. “Attending House and Senate hearings, learning about the history of the nation’s capital and staffing a meeting with the Hong Kong Commissioner for Economic and Trade Affairs were just a few of the unforgettable moments I enjoyed in the office. I had the privilege to see the legislative process from the inside, and met fascinating people who I would not have otherwise been fortunate enough to meet; the entire experience has been invaluable.”
Applicants should be college students or recent graduates, and will assist staff with constituent relations, policy and outreach efforts. Many duties will be administrative in nature, but interns may also be asked to staff meetings in the district or assist legislative staff in Washington.
Applicants should email a résumé cover letter and writing sample to IL14.firstname.lastname@example.org and specify whether they are seeking a position for the Washington, D.C., Campton Hills or McHenry office.
