About the company
Congressman Hultgren (Republican Party) initiated the Congressional Swedish Caucus to promote economic and cultural ties with Sweden and the United States. The caucus functions as a bi-partisan platform for US-Swedish interests; it is not affiliated with any one particular political party. Born and raised in the northwest suburbs, with grandparents that all came from Sweden, Congressman Hultgren studied to be an attorney and then worked as an investment advisor. He then served at multiple levels of Illinois government before 2010, when he was elected to represent the 14th Congressional district of Illinois. In his Washington D.C. office, interns gain priceless practical experience in the political center that is Washington D.C.
As an intern you will be asked to assist with almost every aspect of the work that goes in the office. It will be imperative that you not only do what is asked of you, but that you also take the time to learn about the legislative process while you’re here on Capitol Hill. A typical day may include assisting legislative staff in research and writing projects, giving tours of the Capitol Building, sorting and distributing mail, drafting letters and answering phones. We want our interns to get the most out of this experience, so you will be encouraged to take advantage of opportunities such as attending briefings and hearings.
Please note that it is you as an applicant that will be responsible for all fees associated with the required J-1 Visa, including SACC-USA’s visa service fee.
Interested candidates must be professional, reliable, self motivated, flexible, and able to exercise good judgment
