A Typical Day in Tallahassee
Tallahassee Interns are assigned a variety of tasks depending on the needs of their office. Here are a few examples of what you may be asked to do while in Tallahassee!
Kasey Lewis, Political Science
“I worked for Representative Berman. I was involved in several tasks such as writing press releases, compiling newsletters, conducting bill research and handling constituent concerns. My office treated me spectacularly. Both Rep. Berman and the legislative assistant were involved in making sure I learned as much about the process as possible and gave me many important responsibilities and opportunities."
Rachel Wise, Public Relations and Political Science
“I worked for Rep. Elizabeth Porter. I was responsible for her weekly newsletter, organized a press conference around her 2015 Springs Awareness Resolution, coordinated meetings with representatives and constituents, drafted bill briefings, and wrote press releases."
Christian Pierre-Canel, Political Science
“I worked for Rep. Darryl Rouson (D-70) handling many administrative duties and constituent services. I also attended caucus meetings and took meeting notes. I conducted bill analysis, brainstormed with the team on legislative ideas and strategies. I had an extremely hands on experience while working in the capitol."
Sol Ortega, Political Science and International Studies
“I worked for Sen. Dwight Bullard (D-39). I shadowed legislative aids, helped in the drafting of amendments, wrote talking points, made binders for committee meetings, and learned about the budgetary process. I also attended black caucus events because Sen. Bullard was the chair of the caucus during the legislative session."
