Congressman Auchincloss is pleased to offer internships in his Newton, Attleboro, and Washington D.C. offices through the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters. Hours are flexible to accommodate students' hectic schedules, but internships generally run from 9:00am to 5:00pm. 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.
All interns are paid.
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 should 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' website below. Your application isn't complete without a cover letter and resume. Please send to Alexa Fults in the DC office at email@example.com or Catarina Pereira in the Massachusetts offices at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, and a staff member will contact you if you are selected for an interview. Please understand that we always receive more applications than we can accommodate. Applicants with strong connections to the 4th District of Massachusetts and without prior Congressional office experience will be given priority.
