Paid Spring Internship Opportunity
Email address *
Pay Our Interns seeks highly motivated candidates for a paid, 3 month internship in a dynamic and fast-paced environment beginning in January 2018.

Pay Our Interns (POI) is a bipartisan, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that advocates for an increase in the amount of paid internships in our government, for-profit, and nonprofit sectors. POI serves as a research platform, advocacy guide, and internship database for students and young professionals across the country. Since its founding over a year ago, POI has made national headlines for its work to increase paid internships. To date we have gotten over seven Senators to launch a paid internship program, released the first ever report detailing which members of Congress pay and don’t pay, helped pass legislation and have been featured in two dozen outlets including The Washington Post, The Atlantic, USA Today and Roll Call.

This will not be your regular internship. The intern will not be fetching coffee or making copies. As a small non-profit doing exciting work, the intern will be going to The Hill to meet with Members of Congress, staffers and other legislative experts. Most importantly, the intern will begin working on a new initiative that will be officially launched in 2018.

The Research Intern will provide support to the POI team by performing the following tasks:
Research interns are expected to learn quickly, work independently and in groups, take directions, be organized, be resourceful and collaborative.
