About Office of Congressman Jeff Fortenberry

The Office of Congressman Jeff Fortenberry (NE-01) is accepting applications for a motivated and hardworking Capitol Hill intern in our Washington, DC office. The internship is full-time with room for growth.

Interns are responsible for politely greeting front office guests, professionally answering calls, enthusiastically leading Capitol Tours for Nebraskans, assisting the scheduler and staff assistants with administrative office duties, and assisting the communications team with special projects. Ideal candidates will have a strong work ethic, attention to detail, strong writing abilities, and thrive in fast-paced environments.

Interested applicants should send a resume with references and two writing samples, a cover letter addressed to the Congressman detailing why you want to work for him, and the ideal start and end date with the subject line “Fortenberry Internship” to Nebraska ties a strong plus.

“I enjoyed learning about the inner workings of our nations legislative branch. I got to experience how a congressional office operates on the constituent outreach side of things. The district office is more concerned with constituent services while the D.C. office deals with the legislative process. I enjoyed the individual projects I was assigned to work on. They all dealt with real world cases and issues. ”
