Your collegiate studies are preparing you to enter a professional world that is more complex and more competitive than ever before. Whether your goal is entering the workforce or continuing to graduate school, acquiring marketable skills and experience now is important. An internship is an excellent way to explore possible career options while gaining valuable life experience that can further your future professional pursuits.

Many of today’s best and brightest political minds began their public services as interns in public relations, news organizations, and on congressional staffs, both in Alaska and the nation's capital. Their internships have also been useful in getting accepted into competitive graduate programs. Students interested in politics, public service, public relations, writing and the like can gain valuable experience through an internship in my Washington, DC office.
