Internships - What to Expect

Most UC interns work four days a week, though others work three depending on their campus. It is necessary to take a day off in order to attend seminars each week. 

Experiences range from responding to constituent inquiries, researching legislation, assisting in laboratories and writing news stories. Participants gain valuable work experienceand firsthand exposure to the capital’s policy and political process, and often leave with stories and acquaintances that last a lifetime.
