Loebsack encourages students to apply for summer internships

Published: Wednesday, April 23, 2014 10:01 a.m. CDT

Congressman Dave Loebsack, D-Iowa, announced that his office is now accepting applications from Iowa college students to participate in a Congressional internship program in his Washington, D.C., office. 

The internship program is open to undergraduate students and recent graduates, regardless of major. Summer internships typical begin around Memorial Day and run through August, though some positions are available immediately and specific dates can be set for each individual.

“As a former educator, I have seen the benefits that internships can provide by giving students a firsthand look into the government process,” Loebsack said. “I encourage all hardworking, motivated students and recent graduates to apply.”

Interns will have the opportunity to learn about the legislative process and the federal government by working closely with the legislative, communications and constituent services staff members.

Interested candidates should email their cover letter, resume, a short writing sample and a letter of recommendation to LoebsackInternship@mail.house.gov.
