How can I be an Intern for the General Assembly?
The Intern Program is coordinated in the Human Resources office
of the Department of Legislative Services (DLS). College and university students
interested in working during session as interns with a legislator, committee,
or caucus may apply by October 31. After members, or their designated staff,
review application materials and conduct interviews, placements are made by the
DLS Intern Coordinator. To qualify, students must be enrolled and be able to
work a minimum of two days per week during session. Interns earn academic
credit and receive a set stipend for their work.
How do I become a Page?
The Page Program is coordinated in the Human Resources office
of the Department of Legislative Services. This is a nonpatronage program for
high school seniors. Each year 105 pages and 36 alternates are selected
through their local school systems by October 31. Pages serve two
nonconsecutive weeks in either the Senate or House chambers. Interested
students are advised to visit their guidance offices during the first two weeks
of their senior years and ask for a Page Program application. Each county may
have additional requirements, such as an essay or an interview.
