STATEHOUSE (Sept. 10, 2015) — State Sen. Jim Tomes (R-Wadesville) announced the Indiana Senate Republicans are offering paid internship opportunities in the Senate’s legislative, legal, policy, communications and information technology offices during the 2016 session of the General Assembly.
Qualified candidates must be college students, recent graduates, or enrolled in graduate or law school. Positions are open to Indiana residents or non-residents who attend a college or university located within the state.
Benefits include a $700 bi-weekly stipend, scholarship opportunities, earned academic credits, resume building, community involvement and networking while working along with more than 40 fellow interns at the Indiana Statehouse located in downtown Indianapolis.
These are partisan, full-time positions that begin with a mandatory orientation in late December and conclude at the end of the legislative session in March 2016.
“In today’s competitive job market, potential new hires need to demonstrate they have experience, time-management skills and the drive to excel,” Tomes said. “The Senate internship program offers students the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on training while actively participating in the legislative process.”
Tomes said more information and applications for full-time, spring internships can be found online at www.IndianaSenateRepublicans.com/intern-program.
The deadline to apply is Oct. 31.
