The Lt. Governor’s office hosts college interns during the legislative session, from January-May of each year. This is a great opportunity for students to gain a firsthand understanding of the legislative process. Intern responsibilities may include monitoring the progress of legislation, attending committee meetings, drafting letters and press releases, and helping out with special projects. We make every effort to match interns up with work in their area(s) of interest.
Students interested in an internship in the Lt. Governor's office should submit a resume, a cover letter, and brief answers to the following questions:
- What are your career goals or interests?
- Describe the process by which a bill becomes a law in Vermont.
- What policy issues interest you and why?
- Who is your state Representative, and who are your state Senators?
- What interests you the most about working in the Lt. Governor’s office?
This year's deadline for internship applications is November 30, 2012.
If you have any questions about the internship program, or to submit your application, please contact Nancy Driscoll by e-mail or by calling the office at (802) 828-2226.
