STATEHOUSE (Oct. 12, 2021) – State Rep. Zach Payne (R-Charlestown) encourages local college students and recent graduates to apply online for internships at the Indiana Statehouse before the Oct. 31 deadline.

According to Payne, the House of Representatives offers paid spring internships to college sophomores, juniors, seniors, graduate students and recent graduates of all majors. Interns will work at the Statehouse in Indianapolis for the duration of the 2022 legislative session lasting January through mid-March.

"Many of our full-time staff started as House Republican interns, who used this opportunity to jumpstart their careers," Payne said. "Students and recent graduates should consider the benefits this program presents, like networking and professional development, and apply before the deadline."

Payne said interns work full time, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Spring-semester internships are available in several departments working with Indiana House Republicans.

Positions are available in the Legislative Operations Department where interns work directly with constituents and help track legislative committee activity. The Communications Department is looking for interns to help write press releases, and work with social media campaigns, graphic design and audio/video production. Payne said the Policy Department is also in need of interns to help research, track and analyze legislation.

Interns receive biweekly compensation of $750, free parking, career and professional development support, and enrollment access to an Indiana government class. They can also earn academic credit through their college or university and are eligible to apply for a $3,000 scholarship to use toward undergraduate and graduate expenses.
