Summer 2021 Internships
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all summer internships in Rep. Craig’s office will be conducted remotely. Internships will begin in mid-May and extend no later than August 30. Interns will be shared between the Washington, DC and Burnsville offices. All necessary technology will be provided and interns will receive a monthly stipend for their work. Schedules are flexible to accommodate course schedules and academic programs. A minimum availability of 25 hours per week is highly preferred.
Intern responsibilities will vary, but generally entail researching legislation, attending virtual hearings or briefings, logging and drafting constituent correspondence, compiling press clips, assisting with constituent casework, and answering constituent phone calls. As a result, interns will learn about the legislative process, learn about all of the different functions of a congressional office, and gain hands-on professional experience while serving the constituents of Minnesota’s Second Congressional District. The program is easily tailored to fit interns’ policy interests and career goals.
To apply for an internship with Rep. Craig’s office, please submit a resume and cover letter in one PDF document, to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “(Last Name) Summer Internship Application.” Please include your earliest start date, latest end date, and weekly availability between 8am and 5pm CST in your cover letter.
We strongly encourage individuals with ties to Minnesota and the Second Congressional District to apply. Rep. Craig’s office is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, age, or protected veteran status.
For Summer 2021 internships, applications must be submitted no later than April 18, 2021. Late submissions will not be considered nor accepted.
