The New York State Assembly Intern Committee offers internships at the State Capital in Albany every Spring semester (starts in January and ends in May). This is a paid internship; Session Interns receive a $4,900 stipend (including a book allowance) while also earning academic credit. Mr. Lamark Shaw (from Daemen's Career Services Office) writes that:
"The Assembly offers up to 150 college students an opportunity to get involved in state government and gain firsthand knowledge of the legislative process. The Assembly Intern Committee carefully balances the academic curriculum with the experiential and the theoretical aspects of the internship. In addition to daily responsibilities, Interns are also assigned research and administrative responsibilities in an Assembly office."If you are interested in learning more, contact Lamark Shaw at the Career Services Office BY CLICKING HERE, and attend the workshop scheduled for March 3.
