Senator Tom Harkin, (D-IA), Iowa & Washington, DC

Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) today announced that Iowa college students can now apply for summer 2014 internships in his Washington, D.C. and Iowa offices.  An internship in Harkin’s personal office, or with the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee, is designed for college undergraduates, graduates, and law students.  Interns gain a valuable and unique education about the federal legislative process, while assisting the staff in the areas of legislation, press, casework, and outreach to the state.  Intern responsibilities include performing office duties, writing and researching current legislative issues, and acting as general support to the Senator’s staff.
Part-time and full-time internships are available in Harkin’s Washington, D.C. personal office, on the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee that Harkin chairs, and in his five Iowa offices (Des Moines, Davenport, Dubuque, Cedar Rapids and Sioux City).  Interns typically work during one of three sessions: spring, summer, and fall.
Students who are interested in becoming an intern can apply via the web at Questions can be directed to the intern coordinator in Harkin’s Washington, D.C. office at (202) 224-3254.  The deadline to apply for a summer internship with Harkin’s D.C. personal office, state office, or HELP Committee is March 15, 2014.
