WASHINGTON, D.C. (Press Release) – U.S. Representative Dusty Johnson (R-S.D.) announced that his office is seeking internship applicants for Spring 2020 in his Washington, D.C., Rapid City, Aberdeen, and Sioux Falls offices.
Duties will include researching legislation, attending committee hearings and briefings, leading tours of the U.S. Capitol, handling constituent phone calls, sorting mail and providing support to the staff and the Congressman. Interns will work closely with constituents and staff while developing their research, writing, and communications skills. Most importantly, they will gain an in-depth understanding of the South Dakota At-Large Congressional office.
“Working in the House of Representatives gives you a first-hand look at how the federal government operates on a day to day basis,” said Johnson. “Interns won’t be making coffee runs, they are a major part of our team and we always strive to provide them with meaningful work and experiences, whether that is in Washington or in the state.”
Interested applicants should complete the online internship application and submit a resume no later than November 1, 2019. More information about the internship program, along with the application, can be found online. Resumes should be submitted at dustyjohnson.house.gov/services/internships.
