WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) today announced that Iowa college students can now apply for fall 2011 internships in his Washington, D.C. and Iowa offices.  An internship in Harkin’s personal office, or with the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee, is designed for college undergraduates, graduates and law students. Interns assist the staff in the areas of legislation, press, casework and outreach to the state.  Intern responsibilities include performing office duties, writing and researching current legislative issues and acting as general project support to the Senator’s staff.

“Years ago, I interned for Representative Neal Smith in the House of Representatives.  The experience provided me with an invaluable firsthand education in how government operates and was the start of my political career.  I encourage bright, young men and women who share this interest in public service to apply for an internship in my offices,” Harkin said.

Part-time and full-time internships are available in Harkin’s Washington, D.C. personal office, on the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee that Harkin chairs, and in his five Iowa offices (Des Moines, Davenport, Dubuque, Cedar Rapids and Sioux City).  Interns typically work during one of three sessions: spring, summer and fall.

Students who are interested in becoming an intern can apply via the web at http://harkin.senate.gov/students/intern.  Questions can be directed to the intern coordinator in Harkin’s Washington, D.C. office at (202) 224-3254.

Deadline: July 22, 2011
