(West Windsor, NJ) – U.S. Rep. Rush Holt (NJ-12) today announced the names of the students who have served as interns in his congressional office in the summer of 2012.
Congressional interns are selected on a competitive basis and contribute in a variety of ways to Holt’s service to central New Jersey, including aiding in legislative research, attending congressional hearings, conducting community outreach, and helping with office administrative duties. Interns in the summer session served from June through August 2012. High school and college students who are interested in interning in future sessions are encouraged to visit http://holt.house.gov/ to learn more.
“Before interning at Rush Holt's office, I was not involved in politics and had virtually no knowledge of the field or of the various happenings of government,” said Jack Meyers, a Warren resident and rising sophomore at The College of New Jersey who interned in Holt’s West Windsor office. “Thankfully, with the aid of an amicable staff and highly intellectual and involved co-interns, I gained a vast wealth of knowledge about current and prospective political affairs. Overall, I would say that this was the single most valuable and enriching educational experience I have had in my life.”
“Throughout my internship experience I have learned a lot and been able to help a lot of people in the process,” said Paul Stern, an Englishtown resident and rising junior at the University of Maryland who interned in Holt’s West Windsor office. “All the while, I have been able to gain a new understanding of how government works.”
