Senator Rob Portman Welcomes Spring Interns To Washington
Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) welcomes four Ohio natives to Washington, D.C. as they begin their spring internship working in his office this week.
“I began my career in public service as a Congressional intern and know firsthand the benefits of offering college-aged students an exciting introduction to Congress and the workings of a Senate office,” said Portman. “These young men and women will earn valuable experience as they assist me and my staff on our work to improve Ohio and address the fiscal challenges facing our nation.”
Brittany Armour is from Youngstown, Ohio and graduated in December from Xavier University with a degree in Accounting and Finance.
Michele Molnar is from Amherst, Ohio and is a recent graduate of The Ohio State University where she studied Strategic Communications.
Matthew Shlonsky is from Lyndhurst, Ohio and is a junior at American University studying International Studies.
Brian Vogt is from Chagrin Falls, Ohio and is a junior at The University of Notre Dame studying Finance.
Internships are designed primarily for students who have completed at least one full year of collegiate undergraduate coursework. Preference is given to students who are residents of Ohio. Interns are assigned to work alongside staff responsible for the Senator’s legislative, press, and administrative operations.
Students who wish to apply for internships should visit Senator Portman’s website at portman.senate.gov to fill out an application and submit the following: 1) resume; 2) one page explanation of interest in the internship; and 3) two letters of recommendation.
The deadline for applications for summer internships is Tuesday, March 5, 2013. Please contact Senator Portman’s office at Portman_Internships@portman.senate.gov or 202-224-3353 for more information on summer internships.
