There are two types of opportunities available:

  • Legislative Internships are designed for those who have already gained some experience and are looking to delve deeper into a topic of interest.

General Office Internship

General office internships are designed for applicants in the early stages of exploring policymaking and government. The internship offers opportunities to learn more and refine one’s interests through exposure to many facets of a legislative office, including general operations, policy research, constituent outreach, district activities, and the legislative process. The Senate also schedules optional daily seminars on different aspects of state government.

Applicants should have completed at least two years of high school or equivalent experience.

Hours and Location
The general office internship requires 15-20 hours a week for at least five weeks beginning in June and concluding at the end of July. A typical daily schedule will run from 9 AM – 3 PM. We will consider flexible scheduling for internships that are part of school or other program requirements.

Interns work both in-person and remotely. In-person work will take place in the State House office or at in-district meetings.

How to Apply
A cover letter and a resume should be sent to Eric Helmuth, Chief of Staff: eric.helmuth@masenate.gov. The application deadline is Monday, April 8, 2024. Interviews will be conducted in April and applicants will be notified of their status by Monday, April 29, 2024.


Legislative Internship

Legislative internships are designed for those who have already gained some professional or academic experience and are looking to delve deeper into a topic of interest.

This internship requires the production of legislative research, written work products, and other work material. Legislative interns work closely with the legislative director and other team members on topical projects related to the Senator’s legislative priorities. Project details will be determined based on the applicant’s experience and interests. Legislative interns are also welcome to attend the optional daily seminars on different aspects of state government hosted by the Senate.  

Applicants should have completed at least three years of undergraduate studies or equivalent work experience. Graduate level and law students are preferred.  

Hours and Location
Legislative internships begin in June; the exact schedule and duration of the opportunity depend on the specific project. In past years, legislative interns’ work has fluctuated between 5 and 20 hours week to week, depending on project workflow, for an average of 8-10 weeks. We can be flexible with scheduling to accommodate school or other program requirements.

Interns work both in-person and remotely. Legislative interns mostly work independently, but when needed, in-person work takes place at the State House office.

How to Apply:
A cover letter, with areas of policy interest included, and a resume should be sent to Eric Helmuth, Chief of Staff: eric.helmuth@masenate.gov. The application deadline is Monday, April 8, 2024. Interviews will be conducted in April and applicants will be notified of their status by Monday, April 29, 2024.
