Employment & Internships

These links are ways to obtain information.  They do not constitute a college endorsement Organizations frequently change their procedures and structures, often without revising their web pages.  Therefore, I can make no guarantees about the accuracy of the information on these pages.  Before applying, double-check by phone, e-mail, or postal mail. Once you have looked at the internship information, you can find more information about the office by clicking "return to home page" or "main menu." You may also look at the political sites on my home page.

The internships below may be available either to participants in the CMC Washington Semester Program or to students pursuing summer internships. This list does not exhaust the range of possible internships. Many organizations that accept interns do not have formal internship programs, or have not yet listed them on a Web site. Consult hard-copy resources.  Note:  if you apply to internships as part of the Washington Program, make sure that your internship is full-time.


Again, double-check any information that you find online: these are merely links and we can provide no guarantees about the accuracy of the material or the suitability of any of these internships. If any of these links fail, or if you have suggestions, please email me by clicking my name below.
