Senator Thune's internship program allows students the opportunity to work in the Washington, DC, office or one of the three state offices and provides them with the opportunity to learn how a Senate office operates. Interns in the state offices will participate in state outreach activities, as well as assisting the state staff with constituent services, while students in the Washington, DC, office will have the opportunity to witness the legislative process, give Capitol tours, and attend Senate votes and hearings. Both in-state and Washington, DC, internships will allow students to work closely with constituents, sharpen their research and writing skills, and experience Senate office procedures.
"Interning in a Senate office is a wonderful way to learn how the political process works and is a great way for students who are interested in government to serve their state while gaining valuable experience for the future," said Thune. Senator Thune is a member of the following Senate committees: Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry; Armed Services; Commerce, Science and Transportation; Small Business and Entrepreneurship.
College students who are interested in interning for Thune should submit a resume and cover letter by Nov. 13 to Senator John Thune, Attn: Kashia Axthelm, Intern Coordinator, 493 Russell Senate Office Building, Washington, D.C. 20510 by fax to 202-228-5429 or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
