Senator John Thune is currently accepting applications from college students interested in serving as interns this fall in his Washington, DC office, as well as his Aberdeen, Rapid City, and Sioux Falls offices.
Senator Thune's internship program allows students to gain valuable insight by learning how a Senate office operates. Interns in state offices will participate in constituent service and state outreach activities, as well as assisting the state staff, 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, hone their research and writing skills, and learn a multitude of office skills.
"Interning in a Senate office is a great opportunity for students who are interested in government to serve their state while gaining valuable experience for the future," said Senator Thune.
Senator Thune is a member of the Senate Committees on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry; Armed Services; Commerce, Science, and Transportation; and Small Business.
