McCarthy accepting intern applicants

WASHINGTON, D.C. — House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy is now accepting internship applications for his Summer Internship Program.

“As a former congressional intern myself, I found service to our community and country incredibly fulfilling and I invite all interested college students and recent graduates to apply for internships in my offices,” said McCarthy.

“We face an important opportunity in our country’s history to provide a more prosperous future for all. This internship offers the ability to learn more about the Federal issues important to our community and build to that brighter future.”

Summer Internship applicants should be enrolled in college, at least in their first year of post-secondary studies, with a minimum 3.0 Grade Point Average and good writing and computer skills.

Preference will be given to residents of California’s 23rd Congressional District. However, all applications will be considered. Summer interns are responsible for their expenses, including transportation and lodging costs, and may be eligible to receive a $1,500 stipend, before taxes, should they be a resident of the district and intern in both the Bakersfield and Washington offices.

The Summer Internship program spans eight weeks. Interns spend two weeks in the Bakersfield office and six weeks in the Washington, D.C. offices.

Applications must be postmarked or e-mailed no later than Friday, March 17.
