WASHINGTON, D.C.(Press Release) – U.S. Representative Dusty Johnson (R-S.D.) is seeking internship applications for the fall in his Washington, D.C., Rapid City, Aberdeen, and Sioux Falls offices.
Duties will include researching legislation, writing memos, attending committee hearings and briefings, answering constituent phone calls, sorting mail, and providing support to the staff and the Member of Congress.
Interns will be given the opportunity to develop their research, writing, and communications skills while working closely alongside staff. They will also gain an in-depth understanding of how the legislative branch of government operates while helping to serve South Dakota constituents.
“Interning in a Congressional office is a unique experience,” said Johnson. “Interns get a behind-the-scenes look at Congress in a very collaborative office. My office only has sixteen full-time staff to serve the entire state, and motivated interns play a necessary role in the success of our team.”
Interested applicants should complete the online internship application and submit a resume online no later than July 4, 2023. More information about the internship program, along with the application, can be found online at dustyjohnson.house.gov/services/internships.
