Internships

Washington, DC

In my Washington, DC office, internships run throughout the fall, spring, or summer semesters for college students. Students can gain invaluable work experience through this program. The hours are flexible to accommodate students' hectic course schedules, but generally run 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. when Congress is in session, and 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. when not in session.

In Washington, interns will have a unique opportunity to see the legislative process up close and personal. Responsibilities include answering phones, researching legislation for the member and legislative staff, as well as attending hearings and briefings.

Mississippi

In my Mississippi offices, interns assist staff members with day-to-day office work such as answering phones, interacting with constituents, writing letters, and assisting with office organization. In addition to general tasks, district interns may be tasked with assisting staff with casework or helping with projects of importance to south Mississippi. Candidates must be dependable, possess strong writing skills, and maintain professionalism at all times.

Internships based in the district at the Gulfport, Hattiesburg, and Pascagoula offices are frequently sought out by students who attend the University of Southern Mississippi, William Carey University, Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, Pearl River Community College, and Jones County Junior College.
