Internships


To help prepare the next generation of public servants, my office offers two internship programs, one in my Tampa Office and the other in my Washington, D.C. Office, both run throughout the spring, summer and fall semesters. Please note that all internships are currently held remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our Tampa Office internship provides students with unmatched experience in meaningful work, such as responding to constituent inquiries, learning about federal policymaking and the impact of federal policies on our Tampa community, undertaking administrative duties, working with caseworkers, and assisting with media and community events.

Our Washington, D.C. Office interns will learn about the inner workings of the legislative process and how the federal government operates. This office offers both legislative and press internship opportunities. The legislative internship duties include, but are not limited to, researching legislation, drafting memos and attending committee hearings and briefings. Press internship duties include compiling press clips, creating digital content and drafting social media content.

Our internship programs are open to undergraduate and graduate students as well as recent college graduates, regardless of major. Additionally, interns may arrange to receive academic credit for their internships. Candidates who are chosen for the Washington, DC Office will be responsible for paying for their travel and living expenses. However, interns may apply for one of our limited financial-need based stipends which are allocated on a case-by-case basis pending availability. 

Interested candidates should adhere to our application deadlines outlined below. Submit your applications for District Office here or for our D.C. Office here along with a copy of your resume. If you wish to be considered for both offices please submit an application to each office individually.
