Internships in Senator Harkin's office are an excellent opportunity for a valuable and unique education about the federal legislative process. Interns assist the Senator's staff in the areas of legislation, press, and communications. Intern responsibilities include performing office duties, writing and researching current legislative issues, and acting as general project support to our staff.
The intern program is specifically designed for college undergraduates. Scholastic credit is often possible but those arrangements must be made with the head of the program for which credit is being earned. Our office accepts applications on a rolling basis. "The final deadline to submit Summer 2014 applications is Saturday, March 15, 2014 for DC Offices and Saturday, March 29, 2014 for Iowa offices."
