Currently the Ohio House of Representatives is searching for qualified undergraduate students for volunteer internships. Interning for the legislature provides an opportunity for self-motivated outgoing college students to gain an understanding of the legislative process by actively participating in it. The duties that will be assigned to each intern will vary due to each office having different agendas and constituent caseloads. Typical intern assignments include such duties as constituent outreach, constituent correspondence and response, researching, filing, drafting letters, data entry, etc.
Interning is a great way to gain resume experience, meet many people and expand your knowledge of how state government operates on the legislative level. Former interns have benefited from the internships by acquiring professional experience, school credit, contacts, legislative page positions and in some instances full-time legislative staff positions after their graduation.
