The House Republican Caucus Is Your Link to State and Local Government Resources
The Rhode Island House Republican Office Internship to Career Program
An internship in the RI House GOP Office is a professional learning experience that offers meaningful, practical work skills for college students studying Political Science, Government Relations, Community Development or other related fields. It is also a great learning opportunity for those students interested in pursuing a career in the public sector. It is our objective to provide students with the forum to participate in the day to day operations of Rhode Island State Government and to get experiences that encompass policy development, government functions, and the importance of timely constituent engagement. The interns selected to serve in our program provide us with new ideas, energy and perspectives. We have limited placements available throughout the year. Only summer interns receive a stipend.
Intern responsibilities include: legislative research; policy development assistance; constituent relations; staffing hearings and legislative meetings; office reception; mailings and communications.
If you are interested in being mentored by our RI House GOP staff and legislators, please send a cover letter describing your objectives and goals for this work experience along with your resume to Sue Stenhouse, Chief of Staff at firstname.lastname@example.org . Please also include a statement indicating if this internship would receive an academic credit toward your college degree.
