Internships

Senator Toomey offers internships in all of his Senate offices throughout the year. Internships are unpaid and are open to all Pennsylvania college-age students. An internship in one of our offices provides Pennsylvania students the opportunity to learn more about the federal government, the legislative process and the responsibilities of a U.S. senator.

Washington, D.C.-based interns can expect to perform a wide variety of duties including: answering constituent phone calls, handling mail, performing legislative research, attending hearings, conducting Capitol tours, drafting memos and response letters and assisting the staff on special projects.

State office interns will experience more direct constituent contact through phone duties, answering constituent mail, helping constituents solve problems with federal agencies, and attending town hall meetings and community events with the senator's outreach staff.

We encourage applicants who are motivated and interested in government and public service. The internship program is designed to provide the knowledge, skills and tools that will assist an intern in all future professional endeavors.

The internship application must be submitted to the office where you would like to intern. This includes our Washington, D.C., office as well as our seven Pennsylvania offices. Addresses and fax numbers for our offices can be found here. Direct your application to the attention of the regional manager in state offices and to the operations manager in our Washington office. In addition to the application you will be asked to provide:

  • Two letters of recommendation
