U.S. Sen. Thune’s office accepting summer internship applications

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

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 and hearings. Both in-state and Washington, D.C., internships will allow students to work closely with constituents, hone their research and writing skills, and learn a multitude of valuable office skills.

"Students have a unique opportunity to experience democracy in action as interns in a Senate office," 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 students to consider applying for this rewarding experience."

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