Thune’s office accepting summer internship applications

WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. John Thune (R, S.D.) is currently accepting applications to serve as summer interns in his offices in Washington, D.C., Aberdeen, Rapid City and Sioux Falls, S.D.

Interns who work in Sen. Thune’s Washington, D.C. office have the opportunity to participate in constituent service and outreach activities, have the opportunity to witness the legislative process, give Capitol building tours, and attend Senate votes as well as hearings. Both in-state and D.C. interns will work closely with constituents, hone research and writing skills and learn a multitude of valuable office skills.

“Interns who are selected to serve either in my office in Washington, D.C., or in any of my offices throughout South Dakota will receive a firsthand look at the nuts and bolts of the legislative process and the day-to-day life in a congressional office,” said Thune. “In Washington, interns will have the opportunity to give tours of the Capitol building, attend Senate votes and hearings, and participate in other activities that are unique to Capitol Hill. Students who are interested in interning in Sioux Falls, Aberdeen, or Rapid City will find an equally rewarding experience with assisting staff on important constituent service requests and state outreach activities, which are critical to my work for the people of South Dakota. I encourage all college students who are interested in these opportunities to apply today.”

College students who are interested in interning in Thune’s Washington, D.C., Aberdeen, Rapid City, or Sioux Falls offices should fill out an online application form with their resume and cover letter by March 15, 2019, at, or they can locate the application by searching “intern program” on Mailed-in applications will no longer be accepted.
