The staff at WPI is small, so we rely very heavily on interns for our day-to-day operations. Interns often work without immediate supervision, so it is important that interns know how to take initiative and find creative solutions to problems. The following is a brief description of some of the projects and duties assigned to interns.
Interns perform a variety of daily tasks that help keep our office going. These duties include clerical/administrative tasks, such as answering phones, faxing, photocopying, and database entry. Interns also are asked to read a daily newspaper and clip articles that are relevant to women's issues. These articles become part of a "day book," which is circulated to the staff each day.
WPI publishes a weekly newsletter, The Source on Women's Issues in Congress, which covers legislative action important to women and their families. WPI monitors hearings, briefings, mark-ups, debate, and votes in Congress. Interns occasionally have the opportunity to assist in the production of The Source. Duties vary from week to week.
Internship applicants should be at least freshmen in college with a strong interest in and/or experience with women's issues. They should have strong writing, communication, and computer skills. Intern applicants must submit a cover letter, resume, and a 3-5 page writing sample. Candidates should indicate the length of time they are available. Internships are unpaid.
