Many students express an interest in serving an internship in our Congressional offices. Rep. Eshoo always places great emphasis on helping to shape and develop young people for a lifetime of citizenship and participation.
Her office offers internships (unpaid) for college students in both Palo Alto and Washington D.C. Duties include administrative tasks (i.e. phones, copying, faxing) as well as substantive work (i.e. researching and analyzing legislation, drafting responses to constituent inquiries and assisting with a variety of activities and projects). The enthusiasm and abilities of the intern often determine the extent of his/her involvement. While pay cannot be offered internships, academic credits can be earned.
If you'd like to apply or have an interest in doing so, you can download and complete the application and send it to the Palo Alto office. The deadline for the summer 2013 internship application is March 15th.
If you have questions about the internship program or the application process, call the Palo Alto District Office at (650) 323-2984, (408) 245-2339, or (831) 335-2020 or the Washington D.C. Office at (202) 225-8104.
