As students begin to plan for their summer and fall semesters, U.S. Sen. Tim Johnson (D-SD) is now accepting applications for summer and fall internship positions in his Washington, DC, Sioux Falls, Rapid City, and Aberdeen offices. Johnson is also accepting applications for internships with the Senate Banking Committee.
The Washington, DC, internship program matches interns' interests to South Dakota and federal issues and provides a firsthand opportunity to experience a wide-range of office duties.
Students may also apply to intern in the press shop for Johnson.
Internships in Johnson's state offices will provide students with in-depth knowledge of current issues affecting the state and the opportunity to work directly with South Dakotans. Johnson is chairman of the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs, and is accepting applications for internships in that Committee.
