Congressman Schiff is pleased to offer internships in his offices in Washington and Burbank. Internships provide an opportunity for students and recent graduates to learn more about the workings of a Congressional office and about our country’s democratic political process.
Internships in either office last approximately three months and are intended to be educational experiences; they are unpaid, although academic credit may be available. Interns typically work three days per week during the summer, with more varied schedules during the school year to accommodate class schedules.
If you have any questions regarding internships with Congressman Schiff’s office, please feel free to call the D.C. office at (202) 225-4176 or the Burbank office at (818) 450-2900.
