Thank you for expressing an interest in interning in the office of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. As an intern, you would be a welcomed member of our team, which is dedicated to offering the best service possible to the people of Florida's 23rd Congressional District.

Students chosen will perform a variety of duties for our office and will play an active role in the daily tasks that face a Member of Congress. Interns will have the opportunity to learn and assist all members of my office, assisting with legislative, press, and administrative duties.

An internship in our District Office and on Capitol Hill is what one makes of it. Dedicated interns have the opportunity - provided they are motivated, energetic, and creative - to learn how legislation becomes law and affects peoples' lives.

We are always looking for hard working students who are interested in entering public service or learning how Congress works.
