A student internship is available in Assemblyman Luis Sepulveda’s district office at 1973 Westchester Avenue, Bronx, NY 10462. Applications are being accepted now.

"Our hope is to be able to provide interns with an exciting and rich learning experience, while also exposing them to administrative duties in the office, i.e. creating spreadsheets in Excel, answering phones, sending faxes, doing constituent services and reviewing legislation, thus strengthening their resumes," he said.

If the student has approval and guidance from the college, a credit-bearing internship may be possible, he said.

Interns will be involved in administrative and legislative functions including, but not limited to:

  • research
  • constituent services
  • clerical duties
  • ad hoc projects
  • data entry
  • attending community events in the district
  • providing supplementary support to staff members.

Internships are unpaid; however, potential exists for advancement leading to the possibility of a more permanent and paid position.

Interns will report directly to the chief of staff, who is responsible for the operations of the district office.

Interns will be exposed to myriad aspects of the lower chamber of the legislative branch of New York state government.

The assemblyman said, "This is a great opportunity for college students interested in the mechanisms of state and city governance, and for students who are looking to work in the public arena of municipal, state or federal government. They will gain experience and exposure necessary to effectuate a transition from the theoretical realm of academia and apply what they've learned to the tangible realm of working as a public servant."

Sepulveda and his staff are available to answer questions at 718-931-2620 or sepulvedainterns@gmail.com.
