Capitol Hill internships provide valuable opportunities for college students and new graduates to experience our nation's legislative process first hand. The majority of current Hill staffers, from chiefs of staff to legislative assistants, started off as personal office and committee interns.  
Representative Mark Amodei (NV-02) offers the opportunity for college students and recent graduates to participate in internships in his Washington, D.C. office. Successful candidates must have excellent organizational, personal, writing and communication skills. Nevada ties are a plus, but are not required. Special consideration will be given to applicants from Nevada’s 2nd Congressional District or students attending institutions of higher education in Nevada. 
Internships can be a great opportunity to learn the legislative process, experience life in Washington, D.C., and see how your government works. Responsibilities include answering phones, providing constituents tours of the U.S. Capitol, legislative research, assisting the communications director, and aiding staff for special projects as needed. Interns will also have the opportunity to attend committee hearings, briefings, and staff meetings. This rewarding experience offers students and recent graduates the opportunity to learn about and contribute to the day-to-day operations of a Congressional office. Furthermore, full-time interns may have to opportunity to receive a monthly stipend.
Internships are offered three times per year. We offer a rolling application, meaning we continually accept applications for the following semesters: 

Spring: January - May
