Gus Bilirakis - 12th District

Washington D,C - In the Washington, DC office, internships run throughout the fall, spring or summer semesters for college students. Although all internships in all offices are unpaid, students gain invaluable work experience. The hours are flexible to accommodate students' hectic course schedules, but generally run 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. when Congress is in session, and 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. when not in session.

In Washington, DC, interns' responsibilities will vary. They may be asked to answer phones, run errands, research legislation for the Member and legislative staff, attend hearings and briefings and answer constituent letters on various issues before the House. As a result, interns learn about the legislative process and the many other functions of a congressional office.

District - Internships are available year-round in both the New Port Richey and Tarpon Springs offices.  First consideration is given to students who reside in the 12th Congressional District.
Interns may be asked to assist with a variety of tasks, including but not limited to responding to constituent requests, writing letters, and assisting with day-to-day functions in the district office. Interns also assist staff with specific district-based projects, special events, and outreach activities. Internships are available on a rolling basis, and while unpaid, college credit may be available.

My office is always accepting resumes from college students interested in interning for academic credit.

Interns in my Tampa District Office will have the opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge about how a Congressional office provides constituent services and interacts with the community.

Interns in the Washington, D.C. Office will have an opportunity to learn about the legislative process and the federal government by working on legislative matters and observing the legislative process.
All internships are unpaid and candidates who are chosen for the Washington, D.C. office may be responsible for paying their travel and living expenses. However, interns in any office can arrange to receive academic credit for their work. My internship program is open to all area college students, regardless of major.

Interested candidates should download the internship application and submit to my office along with a copy of your resume.

Ted Deutch - 22nd District

https://teddeutch.house.gov/constituentservices/internships.htm

Thank you for your interest in interning with Congressman Ted Deutch. The office welcomes applications from students in college, law school, graduate school, or in some instances, senior year of high school. While all positions are unpaid, the office can help arrange for academic credit. Internships are available in the Congressman's Washington, DC office and his district headquarters in Boca Raton, FL. *Interns are responsible for all housing and travel related costs.

Due to the overwhelming number of applications, internships with Congressman Deutch are competitive. Applicants are expected to have an interest in the political process, exceptional writing skills, and a professional demeanor and attire. In the district headquarters, interns assist constituent representatives with federal casework, attend town hall meetings and other events, and learn firsthand how a congressional office interacts with the local community. In Washington, interns assist staff by conducting research, writing constituent letters on an array of policy issues, attending briefings and hearings, and administrative tasks such as sorting mail and answering phones. Both experiences provide valuable knowledge of the inner workings of a congressional office.
