Interns are an intricate part of a smooth-running office on The Hill. Congressman Fulcher invites college students and young adults to gain invaluable work experience during three sessions: Fall, Spring, and Summer. As a member of the staff, the work can be challenging, fast-paced, and unlike many other internships with the cultural and historical implications of working in the Nation’s Capital.
There are many duties interns take on depending on their ability or interest. These duties include but are not limited to:
Answer constituent calls to assist them in finding the information they are seeking
Give tours of the U.S. Capitol building
Research legislation for the Member and legislative staff
Attend hearings and briefings on behalf of the Congressman and staff
Open and distribute mail
Work with our Legislative Correspondent to answer constituent mail
Although education is essential, we do not turn away interns based on grade point average, collegiate major, or if they have been politically active. We instead want to understand how the student will be an asset to our team. Congressman Fulcher works on a wide range of issues that everyone can find a niche to work hard to facilitate a fun, welcoming, and inquisitive environment.
