Internships

Senator Isakson tries to provide an educational opportunity, in either his state (located in Atlanta) or Washington, D.C., office, for many Georgia students. The number of interns serving at any one time is governed by space and financial limitations, as well as office needs. Internships are competitive and preference is given to students with Georgia ties and upper-level undergraduate college students.

Senator Isakson’s intern program is an opportunity for college students to spend a fall or spring semester or six weeks in the summer at either our Washington, D.C., or Atlanta, GA office. Interns learn about the workings of the U.S. Senate, Senator Isakson’s office, and federal legislation. We select between four and eight interns for our D.C. program and between two and five interns for our Atlanta program based on the strengths of their applications, resumes, and interviews.

Interns in our D.C. office are assigned to one of four areas—constituent services, press/scheduling, legislative services, or with the Senate Committee on Veterans' Affairs—during their time in the office, but will also be expected to help in whatever capacity is needed. Interns work with staff members to respond to the needs of Georgia’s constituents. We prefer that interns in our D.C. office are at least 21 years old at the start of their internship and interns in our Atlanta office are at least 18 years old at the start of their internship and enrolled in college at the time of application or internship.

We are looking for mature and responsible applicants who are eager to show initiative and who will make the most of their opportunities as interns. We expect our interns to take their jobs seriously and to ensure that their actions inside and outside the office always reflect positively on Georgia and the Senator.
