Today, Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (IL-17) announced that her office is currently accepting applications for spring semester internships in her offices in Rock Island, Peoria, Rockford and Washington, D.C.

“Internships are an invaluable opportunity for young people across our state to learn more about the legislative process and constituent services,” said Congresswoman Cheri Bustos. “I encourage all those interested in gaining a firsthand experience in public service to apply for an internship in one of my offices today.”

In Washington, D.C. both legislative internships and press internships are available, and interns' responsibilities vary. They may be asked to research legislation, attend hearings and briefings, draft press releases, and write constituent correspondence. In Illinois, interns will also perform a variety of tasks including assisting with case work and event planning. As a result, interns gain valuable work experience and learn about the legislative process and the many other functions of a Congressional office.

Spring internships will be available in Bustos’ district offices in Rock Island, Peoria and Rockford, and in her Washington, D.C. office. Interested applicants should complete the internship application form on Bustos’ website. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, and interested candidates are encouraged to apply soon.
