Congressman Don Bacon

Representing the 2nd District of Nebraska

Internships

** Now accepting applications for Spring 2018**

Thank you for your interest in pursuing an internship in one of my Congressional offices.  Representing the people of Nebraska’s Second Congressional district in the House of Representatives is an honor.  Working for Congress is a rewarding experience and interning provides an opportunity to learn more about our government and the operations of the institution.  We are looking for dedicated, hardworking, and passionate interns to assist us in serving constituents in both our Washington, D.C. and Omaha offices.  Internships are available throughout the year and are available to all students and recent graduates; however, priority is given to Nebraskans as well as students attending a Nebraska University/College.  Internships are unpaid, but we will work with schools that award academic credit for service.
