Washington, DC and Georgia Offices
Internships in Congressman Barrow's offices are open to undergraduate or graduate students in good academic standing, and recent graduates. All applicants should have a demonstrated interest in public service and excellent research and writing skills.
The Internship Program is designed to allow students to apply lessons learned in class to a work environment, to make professional contacts, to obtain extensive knowledge of government agencies, and to learn how a Congressional office functions to serve constituents. In today's job market, the experience that an internship provides is a valuable opportunity for career development. The program is without compensation. However, students may earn academic credit.
Because the number of applicants greatly exceeds the number of available positions, the selection process is necessarily very competitive. Candidates are selected based on academic achievement, demonstrated leadership, interest in public policy, and community service. Applicants will be selected on the basis of their written applications and a personal interview. Not all applicants can be interviewed, and not all those interviewed can be accepted. But all applications are appreciated, and all applicants are encouraged to pursue public service throughout their careers.
