Internships

My office is always accepting resumes from college students interested in interning in either my district or Washington, DC office. By assisting the Congresswoman’s district staff, interns have the opportunity to gain firsthand knowledge about how a Congressional office provides constituent services and interacts with the community. Interns in the Washington, DC office will have an opportunity to learn about the legislative process and the federal government by working closely with the legislative, communications and constituent services staff members. All internships are unpaid and candidates who are chosen for the Washington, DC office may be responsible for paying their travel and living expenses. However, interns in either office can arrange to receive academic credit for their work. My internship program is open to all area college students, regardless of their academic major.

Candidates interested in an internship with the district office in Commerce should call (323) 721-8790.

Candidates interested in an internship with the Washington, DC office should email their resume, cover letter, and 1-2 letters of recommendation specific to the internship to william.kauffman@mail.house.gov.  You will be contacted by the intern coordinator.
