WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Tom Udallinvites New Mexico college students interested in gaining legislative or press relations experience to apply for internships in his Washington, D.C., Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Las Cruces and Carlsbad offices.
Washington internships have two summer sessions: May 28–June 28 and July 1–Aug. 2. The deadline to apply for the 2013 D.C. summer sessions is Sunday, March 17.
Placements in New Mexico offices are available throughout the year. The deadlines to apply for state positions are flexible, but students interested in summer internships are encouraged to submit their applications by April 14.
“As interns, students will play an important role in my office’s daily operations while gaining insight into the workings of the ‘world’s greatest deliberative body,’” Udall said. “Internships are an invaluable experience for anyone interested in government or a career in public service, and I encourage students to apply.”
All internships may count toward college credit. Students should check with their respective college or university for requirements. College students who are from New Mexico or attend New Mexico schools are given first preference, and students of all majors are encouraged to apply.
