Republicans internship deadline approaching

The deadline is Tuesday to submit an application to intern with the Indiana House Republicans.

The House Republican Internship Program offers paid, spring-semester internships at the Indiana Statehouse in downtown Indianapolis. The positions are full-time, with hours Monday through Friday, and they last from January through mid-March, according to a news release.

College-level students participating in the internship program work one-on-one with state legislators while developing skills and connections for a professional career.

“This internship is a valuable experience for individuals to not only learn about the legislative process and network, but to also build their résumés and strengthen their skills for the workforce,” state Rep. Sean Eberhart, R-Shelbyville, said.

College sophomores, juniors and seniors, graduate or law students, and recent graduates of all majors are eligible. Students can apply for internships in a variety of areas, focusing on legislative, communications, video production, policy, fiscal policy and technology.

Along with getting paid $750 every two weeks, students also can earn academic credit through their college or university.

When submitting an application, students also must include an official transcript, résumé and two letters of recommendation. Top applicants will demonstrate strong writing skills, have a positive attitude and be willing to work in a fast-paced environment, Eberhart said.
