Washington State Legislative Internship Program- Information Sessions, Apr. 25th and 26th

Information Sessions for 2017 Washington State Legislative Internship Program

The coordinators for the Washington State Legislative Internship Program are going to be visiting the UW- Seattle campus on Monday, April
25th and Tuesday April 26th. They have arranged several information sessions on each day for any student interested in applying for the Winter 2017 internship. Paula Rehwaldt and Emily McCartan will hold info sessions in Gowen Hall, room 1A at the following times:

Monday, April 25th

Tuesday, April 26th

This internship is open to all undergraduates who will be juniors or seniors in Winter 2017. Students in any and all majors are welcome and encouraged to apply. This program provides practical experience in the legislative process, allowing students to gain work experience and to learn about active citizenship in the state and local communities.

Intern’s duties can range from doing necessary research for constituents and tracking legislation, attending committee meetings, answering mail and the telephone hot line, and doing general office duties. There is a lot of possibility for skill development, networking and exploration of careers in state and local government.

Please bring your questions to the information sessions to ask the coordinators and former interns. If you are unable to attend any of these sessions, you can find information on their website:
