W.Va. and D.C. Internships

Thank you for your interest is learning more about becoming an intern for the 1st District of West Virginia and Congressman David B. McKinley.

There are two types of interns available for our office: you can intern at our office in Washington, D.C. or you can choose from our three state-wide offices:

West Virginia

In my West Virginia office, interns may be asked to do a variety of things, including day-to-day office work such as answering phones, writing letters and assisting with media clips. In addition, interns may be assigned to assist in various constituent case work or work on District-based projects of importance.

Please contact the Morgantown office to discuss an internship in one of the district offices.

Washington, DC

In my Washington, DC office, internships run throughout the fall, spring or summer semesters for college students. Although all internships in all offices are unpaid, students gain invaluable work experience. The hours are flexible to accommodate students' hectic course schedules, but generally run 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

In Washington, interns' responsibilities will vary. They will be asked to answer phones, run errands, research legislation for the Member and legislative staff, attend hearings and briefings and answer constituent letters on various issues before the House. As a result, interns learn about the legislative process and the many other functions of a congressional office.
