Thank you for expressing an interest in interning in the office of Rep. John D. Dingell! As an intern, you would be a welcomed member of our team, which is dedicated to offering the best service possible to the people of Michigan's 12th District.
Washington is a great place for students to learn how their government works, but it is much more. The Washington experience, and in particular the experience of working for Congress on "the Hill", teaches valuable work and social skills. It is an experience that is enormously beneficial to students as they prepare for their professional future.
Students chosen will perform a variety of duties for our office, and will play an active role in performing the daily tasks that face a Member of Congress. Interns will have the opportunity to learn and assist all members of my office, assisting with legislative, press, and administrative duties.
An internship on Capitol Hill is what one makes of it. Dedicated interns have the opportunity - provided they are motivated, energetic, and creative - to learn how legislation becomes law and affects peoples' lives. Many of our former interns have later chosen government service as a career.
We are always looking for hard working students who are interested in entering public service or learning how Congress functions.
In my Michigan office, interns may be asked to do a variety of things, including day-to-day office work such as answering phones, writing letters and assisting with media clips. In addition, interns may be assigned to assist in various constituent case work or work on District-based projects of importance.
