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.
