U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) today announced he is accepting applications for paid congressional internships in his Washington, D.C., and Kansas offices for fall 2015.
“Congressional internships offer Kansas students a great opportunity to learn about Congress and the legislative process,” Sen. Moran said. “I hope to give Kansans an opportunity similar to the one I had serving in a Congressional office years ago.”
An internship in Sen. Moran’s Washington, D.C., office – either legislative or communications – provides a unique opportunity to work closely with Senate staff on behalf of the state of Kansas. Legislative interns will gain a better understanding of the legislative process in the U.S. Congress, and develop knowledge and professional skills valuable to future career pursuits. Communications internships provide a unique opportunity to learn about how political communications and the legislative process intersect, and gain practical knowledge about the inner workings of a fast-paced press office. An internship in one of Sen. Moran’s Kansas offices will focus on constituent services and outreach.
The intern program is open to qualified undergraduate and graduate students – or recent graduates – who have strong interest in public service and government and have achieved academic excellence. Applicants for a communications internship should possess exceptional writing and communication skills, knowledge of AP style, experience in digital media, and follow current events closely.
The application deadline for fall 2015 internships is Friday, June 26, 2015. Application forms can be obtained and completed under the “Services” section of Sen. Moran’s website at www.moran.senate.gov. Applicants should submit a completed application form, resume, academic transcript, two letters of recommendation and a cover letter explaining the applicant’s interest in public service and goals of serving as an intern. Please submit required materials to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
