Ok, we all know that White House interns don’t have the best track record, so let’s not even go there. We also all know that there hasn’t been a time in recent history where the government’s role has seemed so important. Wherever your political views lie, right now would have to be one of the coolest times to be an intern at The White House. An expanding government may not be good for us young people in the long run, but you can reap the benefits now by taking one of the many internships that The White House is offering. There’s plenty of information on the White House available, so I don’t think that I need to go any further.

Be the First Intern

One thing that almost everyone can agree on about the Obama administration is that they’ve done a fantastic job with WhiteHouse.gov. It looks great, and it’s really easy to navigate. I don’t know what prior internship pages looked like, and Archive.org doesn’t seem to want to tell me either, but the White House Internships page is phenomenal. It has all the information that you’ll need to learn about whether the internships are something that you want to do, and it’s laid out really well. Internships at The White House are open to US citizens who are eighteen years of age on or before the first day of the internship and are enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program at a college, community college, or university (2-4 year institution) or have graduated in the past two years from undergraduate or graduate school. Internships are offered in:

  • White House Department of Scheduling and Advance
  • The Office of Cabinet Affairs
  • The White House Communications Department
  • The White House Office of Public Liaison and Intergovernmental Affairs
  • The Office of the First Lady
  • The White House Office of Legislative Affairs (OLA)

That gives you three weeks to apply. Summer internships at The White House run from May 22nd-August 14th.
