Overview

Internships in Representative Trone’s District Offices provide unique educational and professional development opportunities for students. In Gaithersburg, Frederick, Hagerstown, and Cumberland, interns have the opportunity to see how legislation directly affects constituents. In addition to general office responsibilities, primary responsibilities of interns include interacting with constituents, drafting correspondence, data entry and filing, attending community events, meetings, and briefings, etc. Internship hours are flexible to accommodate students’ course schedules, but generally run 9:00 am to 5:00 pm and participants in the internship program must be available to work 20-40 hours per week. All interns must be high school graduates unless interning for the summer session, and preferably are enrolled in or have recently graduated from an accredited college or university.

This position provides an opportunity to be part of a hard-working cohesive team, to make a difference in the lives of others, and to increase one’s understanding of the operations of government agencies and the U.S. Congress.
