Thune’s office now accepting fall internship applications



WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) is currently seeking intelligent, hard-working college students to serve as fall interns in his Senate offices locat­ed in Aberdeen, Rapid City, Sioux Falls, and Washington, D.C.

Interns in Thune’s state offices will participate in constituent service and state outreach ac­tivities, while students in the Washington, D.C., office will have the opportunity to witness the legislative process, give Capitol building tours, and attend Senate votes, hearings, and press confer­ences. Both in-state and Wash­ington, D.C., internships will allow students to work closely with constituents, sharpen their research and writing skills, and learn a multitude of valuable of­fice skills.

“Students who intern in a Sen­ate office have a unique oppor­tunity to experience our demo­cratic process with a front-row seat to the action,” said Thune. “Interns gain valuable knowledge about both state and national is­sues and an understanding of the inner workings of a Senate office. I encourage all college students to consider applying for this re­warding experience.”

Thune is chairman of the Sen­ate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation; chairman of the Senate Repub­lican Conference; and a member of the Senate Committee on Fi­nance and the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry.
