The Washington State Legislative Internship Program for Winter 2021 will be offering information sessions this week for interested students. They will be brief, 30-minute sessions through Zoom. To prepare for them, please look through the websites for this internship program: http://leg.wa.gov/Internships/Pages/default.aspx and jot down any questions you may have. This website has information about the eligibility, desired skills, daily responsibilities, applications, and answers to lots of Frequently Asked Questions.
The sessions will be run by the Internship Program Coordinators, Colleen Rust and Leo O’Leary, and we should also have some of the former interns available to talk about their experiences (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com). Each Zoom meeting is linked to its particular time in the list below.
