Senator Brownsberger announces that up to four part-time unpaid internships in his State House office will be available to students from his district for the summer of 2013. Internships are open to college students and to high school students who will have completed their sophomore year. Each internship will require a commitment of 10-12 hours a week in the office, with potential additional research work outside scheduled hours.
The application deadline is March 8, 2013. A cover letter and resume should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to Senator William Brownsberger, State House, Room 413C, Boston, MA 02133. Interviews will be conducted in March and applicants will be notified of their status by April 5.
Legislative internships offer students a wide variety of experiences including issue research, constituent service, legislative work and budget tracking. Daily seminars on different aspects of state government are scheduled by the Senate.
College graduates may be able to arrange additional non-office internships focused on policy development. The application contacts are the same as above, but there is no set schedule.
