U.S. Rep. Lauren Underwood, D-Naperville, is accepting applications for spring internships at her offices in West Chicago, Woodstock and Washington, D.C. According to a news release, the internships will provide an opportunity for students and recent graduates to directly participate in public service though supporting Underwood’s constituent engagement and services, administrative responsibilities and research.

“I first came to Washington as an intern, and that summer changed my life and gave me my first hands on experience with policymaking and serving the people of Illinois,” Rep. Underwood said in the news release. “Internships provide an invaluable opportunity to serve our community while gaining practical career experience and I encourage anyone interested to apply.”

The release states that the interns' responsibilities will vary. They will be asked to answer phones, assist with correspondence, coordinate and conduct tours, research legislation, assist with constituent casework, and attend hearings and briefings on various issues. Qualified candidates must be friendly, organized, flexible, and possess the ability to multitask in a fast-paced environment.

Spring internships are available from January through mid-May, with start and end dates tailored to accommodate an academic calendar year. A limited number of paid positions are available for internship applicants who are not sponsored by outside organizations.

Interested applicants should apply by completing the online application, a cover letter, and resume on underwood.house.gov. Preference will be given to applicants with ties to Illinois' 14th Congressional District, which Underwood represents.
