Senator Kirk Watson is seeking highly motivated and responsible individuals with a strong commitment to maintaining confidentiality and professionalism to assist with operations in his Capitol and district offices. Candidates must possess strong organizational skills.
Interns will support legislative and district staff by researching issues and policies, writing policy memos and constituent letters, and performing general office duties.
Positions are unpaid, part-time, and hours are negotiable. The internship dates are for the summer of 2017, from June 6th to August 25th. Interns are expected to commit to 15-20 hours per week, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Interns will set a regular schedule of hours in that time frame in blocks of at least three hour increments. Both offices are located in the Capitol Complex in downtown Austin. Start and end date are flexible. We will work with your college or university to earn course credit for your internship, if applicable.
