Our office offers internships in both New Hampshire and Washington, D.C. Internships in Senator Hassan’s office provide hands-on experience, allowing students to learn alongside Senator Hassan’s professional staff as they work on behalf of the people of New Hampshire.
Washington D.C. Office
The Washington, D.C., legislative internship gives students the opportunity to learn how the Senate functions and how it interacts with the House of Representatives, as well as the Executive and Judicial branches of the federal government. Interns may have the opportunity to sit-in on committee hearings and briefings, assist with legislative projects, attend educational events in and around Washington D.C., and lead Capitol tours. Interns will also assist with mail room duties, provide administrative support, and participate in front office staffing.
Press internships are also available in the Washington, D.C., office for individuals who are interested in political communication. Press interns work closely with the communications team and help support all aspects of their work. Press interns will assist with monitoring the news, drafting written materials, social media, and media relations.
New Hampshire Office
The New Hampshire internships provides a local perspective on how our office helps constituents resolve issues involving federal agencies. Other opportunities may include attending community meetings, processing constituent mail, drafting letters, and conducting policy research.
Preference will be given to students who are from New Hampshire or are enrolled in a New Hampshire college or university. Interested students with a solid academic record, involvement within their community, and eagerness to learn more about the federal government are encouraged to apply. The program is geared toward those who have completed at least a year of college. Successful applicants will have strong writing and research skills, the ability to adapt to a fast-paced environment, and enthusiasm for engaging with constituents in person and on the phone.
Senator Hassan’s internship program is unpaid, and students are expected to arrange for their own housing, food, and transportation. We are happy to work with colleges and universities so that interns can receive academic credit for their experience in our office.
We are currently accepting applications for interns for Summer 2018 (see below). Please direct any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
