Congressman Hakeem Jeffries

Representing the 8th District of New York



Internships run throughout the fall, spring and summer semesters for college students. Although all internships in all offices are unpaid, students gain invaluable work experience. The hours are flexible to accommodate students' hectic course schedules, but generally run during office hours Monday to Friday, 9:00a.m. to 5:00p.m.

All interns must be high school graduates who are enrolled in or have recently graduated from an accredited post-secondary educational institution, college or university. We are seeking applicants with a mature, professional manner who are well-organized, efficient and self-motivated.

If you would like to be considered for a position, please email your resume and cover letter to the appropriate email address below. In your application, be sure to include the semester and dates you would be available to intern.


Washington, DC

In Washington, interns' responsibilities will vary. They will be asked to answer phones, run errands, research legislation for the Member and legislative staff, attend hearings and briefings and answer constituent letters on various issues before the House. As a result, interns learn about the legislative process and the many other functions of a congressional office.
