Interns in John’s eight Colorado offices have the opportunity to assist constituents through correspondence, outreach, and advocacy. Our Colorado interns will take notes in daily and weekly meetings, help draft official letters, collaborate on research projects, cut through government red tape with our constituent affairs team, and more.
Interns in John’s Washington, D.C. office focus either on communications or legislation. On your application, please indicate if you are interested in a communications internship; otherwise, all applicants will be considered for the legislative focus.
Interns focused on communications will help compile daily press clips, maintain media lists, draft press releases, statements, and social media content, and conduct research for speeches.
Legislative interns will help answer constituent calls, log voicemails, and assist with tour and flag requests. In addition, they have the opportunity to aid legislative staff by drafting letters, attending briefings and committee hearings, and writing research memos.
