Sen. Reed’s office looking for summer interns

U.S. Sen. Jack Reed is currently accepting applications for summer interns to serve in his Cranston, Providence and Washington, D.C., offices.

The deadline for applications to intern in Washington is March 7. Applications for internships in Reed’s Providence and Cranston offices will be considered on a rolling basis.

“This is a chance for students to gain valuable work experience and get a firsthand look at how the federal government works while also helping to serve fellow Rhode Islanders,” Reed said in a press release.

Interns in Reed’s Washington office help research legislative issues, give tours of the U.S. Capitol, attend committee hearings, and provide administrative support to Reed and his staff.

Both full-time and part-time internships are available. Interns in the Cranston and Providence offices assist in research and policy initiatives as well as special projects and events. They also perform various administrative tasks such as greeting guests, drafting correspondence, and sorting mail.

There are two summer sessions and all of these internships are unpaid, but academic credit may be available for some schools.
