State Senator Jeff Smith is looking for students interested in interning in the State Capitol for fall and/or spring semesters. This internship requires a commit to at least 10 hours per week during the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The primary focus of these unpaid internships is professional development. Intern responsibilities vary, but include policy research, summarizing proposed legislation, and responding to constituent inquires. All interns also assist with general office operations, including answering the phone. In addition, there may be opportunities for interns to attend session days, sit in on committee meetings, and participate in in-district events.

A legislative internship at the Capitol is an excellent way to gain valuable real life experience about everyday operations of the Wisconsin State Legislature and the state’s legislative process. This internship is a wonderful opportunity open to both students and recent graduates.

To apply, send your cover letter, resume and completed internship application to Sen.Smith@legis.wisconsin.gov, or mail your application materials to Senator Jeff Smith, Wisconsin State Capitol, P.O. Box 7882, Madison, WI 53707.
