Sen. John Thune is currently seeking hard-working college students to serve as interns in his office in Washington, D.C., as well as in his offices in Aberdeen, Rapid City and Sioux Falls.
Interns in Thune's state offices will participate in constituent service and state outreach activities, while students in the Washington, D.C. office will have the opportunity to witness the legislative process, give Capitol tours, and attend Senate votes and hearings. Both in-state and Washington, D.C. internships will allow students to work closely with constituents, hone their research and writing skills, and learn a multitude of valuable office skills.
"Interning in a Congressional office provides students with a front row view of the legislative process and can serve for many as an excellent introduction to public service," said Thune. "I encourage all interested college students to apply for this rewarding experience."
Thune is a member of the Senate Committees on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry; Budget; Commerce, Science, and Transportation; and Finance.
