District 63 State Representative Mike Braun of Jasper wants to remind students in his district that applications to intern with the Indiana House Republicans during the 2018 legislative session are due October 31st.
The House Republican Internship Program offers paid, spring-semester internships at the Indiana Statehouse in downtown Indianapolis. These are full-time positions, Monday through Friday, lasting from January through mid-March.
Braun says college-level students participating in the internship program work one-on-one with state legislators while developing valuable skills and connections for a professional career.
Braun notes that through their internship program, students get involved with state government and see firsthand how laws are made in Indiana.
He adds that along with getting paid, students gain hands-on experience, build their resumes and make lasting connections that could open the door to a career. With the application deadline looming, Braun is highly encouraging students in the community to apply for this one-of-a-kind opportunity.
College sophomores, juniors and seniors, graduate or law students, and recent graduates of all majors are eligible. Students can apply for internships in a variety of areas, focusing on legislative, communications, video production, policy, fiscal policy and technology.
Along with getting paid $750 every two weeks, students can earn academic credit through their college or university.
When submitting an application, students must also include an official transcript, resume and two letters of recommendation. Braun says top applicants will demonstrate strong writing skills, have a positive attitude and be willing to work in a fast-paced environment.
Applications can be submitted online at www.indianahouserepublicans.com/internship.
Braun represents House District 63, which includes portions of Daviess, Dubois, Pike and Martin counties.
