Deadline for Applications is March 5, 2013
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) is accepting applications for internship opportunities in his Washington, D.C. and state offices.
“I began my career in public service as a Congressional intern and know firsthand the benefits of offering college-aged students an exciting introduction to Congress and the workings of a Senate office” said Portman. “These young men and women will earn valuable experience as they assist me and my staff on our work to improve Ohio and address the fiscal challenges facing our nation.”
Internships are designed primarily for Ohio students who have completed at least one full year of collegiate undergraduate coursework. Interns are assigned to work alongside staff responsible for the Senator’s legislative, press, and administrative operations.
Students who wish to apply for a summer internship should visit Senator Portman’s website at portman.senate.gov to fill out an application and submit the following: 1) resume; 2) one page explanation of interest in the internship; and 3) two letters of recommendation.
