Internships

Congresswoman Teresa Leger Fernandez offers internships in her Washington D.C., Santa Fe, and Rio Rancho offices.

Interns will work with staff to serve the constituents of New Mexico's 3rd Congressional district. Our goal is to provide each intern with a meaningful experience that will enhance their understanding of Congress and give them the professional experience they need to further their career. Intern responsibilities may include but are not limited to:

  • Answering phones
  • Sorting mail
  • Drafting constituent correspondence
  • Assisting with events
  • Drafting social media
  • Attending briefings and hearings
  • Attending meetings with stakeholders
  • Administrative work as assigned

Internships in both the D.C. and District offices run throughout the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters.

Interns are able to work on either a part-time or full-time basis.

Full time Interns are compensated with a $1,000 stipend per month unless sponsored by an outside organization. Part-time interns will receive a comparable stipend to their hours worked. Please note, unless an applicant is financially sponsored by an outside organization, House rules state that all paid House of Representative Interns must be United States citizens.

To be considered for an internship, please complete the application linked below. Please make sure to indicate whether you are applying for a Washington D.C., Santa Fe, or Rio Rancho internship in the application.

Due to a high volume of applicants, a response is not guaranteed. You will likely only be contacted if you are selected for an interview. No phone calls or walk-ins please.

New Mexico ties are strongly preferred. This office is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate based on race, religion, disability, age, ethnicity, national origin, sex, gender, LGBTQ identification, family status, or military status. Women, people of color, and other members of traditionally underrepresented communities are strongly encouraged to apply.
