Thune seeking summer interns

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Press Release) – U.S. Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) is currently seeking college students to serve as summer interns in his office in Washington, D.C., as well as in his offices in Aberdeen, Rapid City, and Sioux Falls.

Interns in Thune’s state offices will participate in constituent service and state outreach activities, while students in the Washington, D.C., office will have the opportunity to witness the legislative process, give Capitol building tours, and attend Senate votes and hearings. Both in-state and Washington, D.C., internships will allow students to work closely with constituents, hone their research and writing skills, and learn a multitude of valuable office skills.

“I can’t imagine a better way of learning about the legislative process than with a Senate internship,” said Thune. “Interns in my offices will experience the inner workings of a Senate office, while improving their legislative knowledge and communication skills. This is a historic time for our nation’s government, and I encourage all students to apply for this unique opportunity.”

Thune serves as the Senate majority whip, the number two position in Senate leadership, and is a member of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation; a member of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry; and a member of the Senate Committee on Finance.
