Internships

Washington, DC

In my Washington, DC office, internships run throughout the fall, spring, or summer semesters for college students.  Although internships in all offices are unpaid, students gain invaluable work experience.  The hours are flexible to accommodate students’ hectic course schedules, but generally run 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM at least three days a week.

In Washington, DC, interns’ responsibilities and duties will vary.  They will be tasked with legislative and administrative duties.  The legislative duties range from researching legislation for the Member and legislative staff, attending various hearings and briefings on important legislative issues, and responding to constituent comments.  Administrative duties include answering phones, greeting constituents, giving tours of the Capitol, and working closely with staff members on a variety of projects.

Interning in Washington, DC provides a unique, first-hand experience of the legislative process.  Interns get the chance to learn about all the exciting aspects of our nation’s Capital, while being able to absorb the many functions of a Congressional office.

Washington, DC internship applications are currently being accepted for Fall 2016.

East Bay

In my East Bay offices, interns may be asked to do a variety of things, including day-to-day office work such as answering phones, writing letters and attending District events. In addition, interns may be assigned to assist in various constituent case work or work on district-based projects of importance.

What are these options?
This is to help the constituents that are hard of hearing or use a video phone alert us to that fact so we can use the proper technology when we need to call them. The default option “Voice” is a normal audible telephone.
