The Michigan House of Representatives employs both full-time and part-time employees. Employees of the House of Representatives are Legislative employees who are excluded from the classified system of civil service employment.

The House of Representatives is committed to providing the tools and support necessary to foster a safe and healthy work environment for everyone. The House takes workplace harassment seriously. In 2018, a bipartisan work group reviewed the House’s harassment policy and training materials resulting in recommendations, many of which were implemented to strengthen our commitment.

Description

10-Week Program: September 13th – November 18th

In addition to one of two special focus projects, interns will assist with constituent outreach and data collection operations in statehouse districts held by House Democrats, working primarily with the Member Services team for the MI House Democratic Caucus. This internship will provide you with an understanding of how to conduct effective constituent outreach and how to operate databases and tools that are widely used across the political field.

Time Commitment and Travel (carpooling options can be arranged)

● Tuesdays 12PM-4PM: Combination of in-person at the House Office Building (HOB) and working remotely. Some projects or activities lend themselves better to being in-person but when it makes sense, we will work remotely.

Fridays 12PM-4PM: Fridays will typically in-district helping with legislative canvassing. However, for most of October we will be focused on our special projects. Again, if it makes sense to work remotely, we will.

What Interns will Gain

The MI House Dem Caucus is dedicated to providing a beneficial experience for our interns. We hold regular intern events that include:

Training & Learning: Interns will get hands-on experience with various forms of constituent outreach including but not limited to how to effectively lead canvasses, plan events, text campaigns, direct mail strategy, and how to process and analyze data utilizing technology widely used in the political field.

● Network and Learn: Interns will meet with professionals and leaders who interact with the Legislature in various ways. Past guests have included State Representatives, House and Senate staff, lobbyists, and representatives from executive branch departments.

● Intern Appreciation Event – The internship will end with an appreciation event. Past Intern Appreciation Events have included special guest speakers, luncheons, awards, and opportunities for continued growth and advancement.

Minimum Qualifications

Applicants should be self-motivated professionals who have an interest in political organizing, are comfortable in dealing with the public, have good communication skills (both oral and written), and a value system that aligns with that of the organization.
