Boozman announces spring internship program


WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. John Boozman is seeking full or part-time interns to help staff in his Washington, D.C., and state offices during the 2013 spring semester.

The Washington intern program emphasizes practical and educational aspects of working on Capitol Hill. Interns participate in the operation of the Senate office, attend committee hearings and watch floor proceedings from the Senate gallery. They will also provide constituents with tours of the U.S. Capitol.

Students may also apply to serve in one of the state offices where each will have the opportunity to gain firsthand knowledge about how a senate office provides constituent services, interacts with the community, and serves as a liaison to the Washington office. Boozman has offices at Lowell, Fort Smith, Mountain Home, Jonesboro, Little Rock, Stuttgart and El Dorado.

Priority is given to Arkansas students who have completed at least their sophomore year of college. The positions are unpaid. Spring session dates are Jan. 7 – May 17, 2013, for Washington and Jan. 14 – April 26, 2013, for the state offices.

Applicants should visit www.boozman.senate.gov and click on the “apply for an internship link.” The deadline to apply is Nov. 9.

Questions should be directed to the intern coordinators, Clermon Acklin, in the D.C. office at Clermon_Acklin@Boozman.senate.gov and Stacey Mattingly, in the state at Stacey_Mattingly@Boozman.senate.gov .
