The Office of Congressman Jake Auchincloss offers internships through his Newton, Attleboro, and Washington D.C. offices through the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters. The Office of Congressman Jake Auchincloss’s Washington D.C. office and District Offices in both Newton and Attleboro are currently seeking part-time interns. Internships are intended for current undergraduate students, recent college graduates, and students currently enrolled in graduate school. The Office will also host high school students in special circumstances.
District Office Interns are unpaid volunteers; however, students may be eligible to earn academic credit for their participation by working with the Office and their university advisors. Interns are eligible for a stipend.
Qualified applicants should have strong oral and written communication skills, the ability to manage multiple tasks at once, a willingness to work in a fast-paced environment, and be comfortable assisting constituents. Sound knowledge of Microsoft Office, a solid work ethic, and a basic understanding of the Congressional political process is expected.
Responsibilities include but are not limited to: answering and screening phone calls, working with staff to research legislative and casework-related issues, assisting with administrative tasks, drafting constituent correspondence on a variety of issues, assisting the press team with various tasks, and other projects as they arise.
All applications must be submitted through the online application on Congressman Jake Auchincloss’s website at https://auchincloss.house.gov/services/internships.
