Internships

Washington, DC

Congresswoman Deb Haaland's office is in search of undergraduate students or recent graduates for her paid internship program in her Washington, D.C. office. Our internship program will provide students with a first-hand experience of the operations of a congressional office and the legislative branch. In the DC office, interns will be responsible for numerous tasks, including answering phone calls, conducting legislative research for staff, composing constituent letters, compiling press clips, writing press releases and social media posts, and attending virtual hearings and briefings. We have a limited number of paid internships, with unpaid internships also offered for interested candidates. Priority will be given to applicants from New Mexico’s First District who are eligible for the Pell Grant or who otherwise can demonstrate financial need.

Throughout the ongoing public health crisis, Congresswoman Haaland’s office has based its policies and practices on ensuring the health and safety of both our staff and Capitol staff, while continuing to serve the constituents of New Mexico’s First District and providing exceptional educational experiences. Interns are integral to our success and the work of the Congresswoman, and we will continue to bring new interns onto our team during the pandemic. Internships will be remote with the possibility of transitioning to an in-person internship should public health circumstances improve. Currently, all staff and interns are working remotely.

Our office is committed to maintaining an environment of mutual respect where opportunities are available to all applicants without regard to race, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, religion, physical and mental disability, or experience. Diversity and inclusion among our staff are critical to our success and we seek to recruit and develop the most talented people from a diverse candidate pool.
