State Reps. Jack Jordan (R-Bremen) and Jake Teshka (R-North Liberty) encourage local college students and recent graduates to apply online for an internship at the Indiana Statehouse before the Oct. 31 deadline.
“Interns work alongside and learn from state legislators and staff, which boosts their resumes and gives them experience in a professional setting,” Jordan said. “I strongly encourage interested students in our district to apply today and not miss out on a great opportunity.”
The House of Representatives offers paid spring internships to college sophomores, juniors, seniors, graduate students and recent graduates of all majors. Interns will receive $900 biweekly while working at the Indiana Statehouse in downtown Indianapolis during the 2024 legislative session, which begins in January and concludes mid-March.
Teshka said interested Hoosiers should visit indianahouserepublicans.com/internship and complete the application before Oct. 31.
“My desire to serve as a state representative started when I interned at the Statehouse,” Teshka said. “I was able to witness the legislative process firsthand, and learn more about how laws come to fruition and how legislators can work together to benefit Hoosiers.”
Positions are available in legislative operations where interns work directly with constituents and help track committee activity. The communications department is looking for interns to help write press releases and email newsletters, and work with social media, graphic design and audio/video production. The policy department is also in need of interns to help research, track and analyze legislation.
Internships are full time, Monday through Friday, and include free parking, career and professional development assistance, enrollment access to an Indiana government class, and opportunities to earn academic credits through the student’s college or university. Interns are also eligible to apply for a competitive $3,000 scholarship to use toward undergraduate and graduate expenses.
