Local legislators are announcing they are searching for paid interns during next year’s session of the General Assembly.
They are looking for candidates to fill spots for the session which lasts January through mid-March. Those who intern in downtown Indianapolis will be paid $900 bi-weekly, says Rep. Ryan Lauer. Intern positions 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.
State Rep. Alex Zimmerman of North Vernon said that he served as an intern and now as a state representative hopes to see young Hoosiers participate.
Students can apply for internships in a variety of departments related to their field of study, including legislative operations, policy, and communications and media relations.
The deadline to apply is Oct. 31st. You can get more information online at http://www.IndianaHouseRepublicans.com/Internship.
