Applications are now open for the Indiana Senate Republican Caucus internship program for the 2021 legislative session, which includes the opportunity to serve as an information technology intern.

IT interns work alongside the IT director, legislators, staff and fellow interns to assess and respond to the IT needs of the Senate.

Daily responsibilities for the IT internship include:

  • Troubleshooting hardware and software issues;
  • Assisting in the implementation of new technologies;
  • Monitoring online streaming of committees; and
  • Reformatting and reimaging computers.

Through these tasks, interns gain an understanding of the daily work of state government along with a variety of professional development and networking opportunities.

Vanessa Snyder, who served as an IT intern during the 2016 legislative session and now works full-time as the Senate’s IT System Administrator, said the following on the IT internship:

“I really enjoyed my IT internship with the Indiana State Senate. I was able to assist state legislators, staff and interns while increasing my knowledge and skills. If you are interested in getting firsthand experience and networking opportunities while being a part of the legislative process, then the Indiana Senate internships are perfect for you.”

Jessica Sebastian, who served as an IT intern during the 2018 legislative session, offered the following on her internship experience:

“I’d recommend this internship to anyone in the IT field. This helped me boost my resume; it’s helped boost my networking, and I’ve also met some amazing people along the way.”

The internship program typically begins with a mandatory orientation in late December and concludes at the end of the legislative session in April 2021, and is open to college and graduate students, as well as recent graduates.
