U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz (FL)


The Office of Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is seeking interns for the spring

semester in Washington, DC office. Although all internships in all offices are

unpaid, students gain invaluable work experience. Our interns' responsibilities are

varied but substantive. They will be asked to answer phones, research legislation

for the Member and legislative staff, attend hearings and briefings, run errands,

and answer constituent letters on various issues before the House. Congressman

Gaetz serves on the Armed Services Committee, Judiciary Committee, and the

Budget Committee. Interns will be able to get a broad perspective of these issue

areas and the federal government in action. As a result, interns learn about the

legislative process and the many other functions of a congressional office.

The hours are flexible to accommodate students' hectic course schedules, but

generally run 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. when Congress is in session, and 9:00 a.m. to

5:00 p.m. when not in session. Students will leave the internship with a greater

understanding of how a Congressional office works, how constituent

relationships are forged and maintained, and how the legislative process works.


Students should be highly motivated, ready to learn, and eager to work in a fast-

paced environment. Please apply by emailing your resume and a cover letter to
