Intern with Senator Spilka!

January 20, 2010

Senator Spilka is looking for motivated individuals to work as unpaid interns in her State House office. Ideal candidates will be professional, responsible, and enjoy working in a fast paced environment.

An internship at the State House is a wonderful opportunity to gain firsthand knowledge of Beacon Hill and the legislative process. Internships are offered on a full or part-time basis and are available for undergraduate or graduate students.

As an intern, you will be able to serve in many different capacities and learn how the State Senate operates. Some of your responsibilities may include:

  • Attending committee hearings
  • Preparing for Formal Senate Sessions
  • Researching legislation and policy
  • Processing constituent correspondence
  • Answering telephone calls
  • Working on special projects as needed

The particular policy areas an intern works on change from time to time, but in general involve economic development issues, environmental issues, transportation, education, healthcare, technology, and land use. During their term, interns are encouraged to attend briefings, committee hearings, and lectures of personal interest.

All are welcome to apply. Knowledge of or connection to the 2nd Middlesex and Norfolk district is a plus. To apply please submit a cover letter and resume to Sarah Blodgett at Sarah.Blodgett@state.ma.us.

Please call the office at (617) 722-1640 with any questions.
