The Indiana State Senate Democrat and Republican Caucuses offer legislative, legal, communications, and information technology internships, all of which provide paid, hands-on experience in the state legislature. These spring semester positions align well with obtaining academic credit and offer a variety of scholarship and networking opportunities.
Daily responsibilities for communications interns include working alongside legislators, press secretaries, policy analysts, visual communication specialists, and the Statehouse press; writing and editing columns, op-eds, and press releases; creating electronic communication and social media strategies; taking pictures and videos; and more. Then within the communications department, there are also specialized positions such as the policy internship and the visual communications internship. Through these tasks, each intern obtains a rich understanding of both the procedure and substance of the legislative process and how policy is made, while gaining practical experience.
