Indiana Republicans seek intern applicants for legislative session

INDIANAPOLIS — Applications to intern with the Indiana House Republicans during the 2018 legislative session are due Oct. 31, according to State Rep. Bob Cherry (R-Greenfield).

The House Republican Internship Program offers paid, spring-semester internships at the Indiana Statehouse in downtown Indianapolis. These are full-time positions, Monday through Friday, lasting from January through mid-March. According to Cherry, college-level students participating in the internship program work one-on-one with state legislators while developing valuable skills and connections for a professional career.

“This internship program puts young Hoosiers in the middle of the action, working with legislators and staff on issues that impact Indiana,” Cherry said. “An internship with the House Republicans gives students and recent graduates the chance to build their résumé, grow professionally and connect with business and community leaders. With the deadline quickly approaching, I encourage students in our area to apply for this unique opportunity.”

College sophomores, juniors and seniors, graduate or law students, and recent graduates of all majors are eligible. Students can apply for internships in a variety of areas, focusing on legislative, communications, video production, policy, fiscal policy and technology. Along with getting paid $750 every two weeks, students can earn academic credit through their college or university.

When submitting an application, students also must include an official transcript, resume and two letters of recommendation. Cherry said top applicants will demonstrate strong writing skills, have a positive attitude and be willing to work in a fast-paced environment.
