Udall Recruiting Summer Interns for Washington, D.C., Office

WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Tom Udall invites New Mexico college students interested in gaining legislative or press relations experience to apply for summer internships in his Washington, D.C., office.

For more information and to apply for an internship, please visit http://www.tomudall.senate.gov/internships. The upcoming summer internship session in Udall's office in Washington, D.C., will last from May 31 - July 15. Applications and supporting materials, including letters of recommendation, must be submitted by March 15.

"Congressional internships allow students to see the inner-workings of a Senate office and the legislative process and gain a unique perspective on the federal government and policy," Udall said. "Summer session interns have the opportunity to learn more about policy issues that interest them by working with my staff, attending hearings and House and Senate gallery proceedings, and listening to high-profile speakers during the summer speaker series. Interns play an essential role in my office's daily operations, and I encourage New Mexico college students interested in pursuing a career in government or public service to apply."

Students of all majors are encouraged to apply, and internships may count toward college credit. Students should check with their respective college or university for requirements.
