The state offices provide interns with a practical knowledge of constituent services. State office interns interact with the Senator’s staff and constituents on a daily basis. In addition to administrative duties, interns support office staff by addressing constituent concerns, working with federal agencies to resolve Floridian’s issues, participating in outreach efforts, attending local events, and assisting the staff on special projects. The program is designed to provide the knowledge, skills and tools that will assist our interns in all future professional endeavors as well as motivate the interns’ interest in public service.
Washington, D.C. Program
The Washington, D.C. office internship offers a unique experience in which interns get to observe first-hand the operations of the Senate, including its interaction with the House of Representatives and executive and judicial branches. Interns in the Washington office assist staff on special projects, perform legislative research, attend hearings and conduct Capitol tours. Applicants who are motivated, devoted to public issues, and dedicated to their studies are welcome. While preference is always given to Florida residents, everyone is encouraged to apply.
