Congresswoman Escobar with Summer 2019 District Office Interns


Congresswoman Escobar offers both part-time and full-time internships in her Washington, DC and El Paso offices. These positions are a unique and exciting way to gain experience in a congressional office and a window into the federal government. Internships are open to high school, college and graduate-level students and many affiliated schools and programs offer academic credit.

Duties can include attending congressional committee hearings and legislative meetings, writing issue briefs, conducting research, drafting correspondence, performing administrative tasks, and assisting staff when needed. Responsibilities and projects are tailored to each individual’s interest over time and a concerted effort is made to ensure that students’ educational and professional goals are met.

Interns are accepted at both of Congresswoman Escobar’s offices on a year-round basis. Because interest is particularly high during the summer months, you should submit your resume as soon as possible if you wish to intern during this time. Please note that all internships are currently in person.
