Thank you for visiting my website! It is an honor and a privilege to serve the residents of Rockville and Gaithersburg as District 17’s State Senator.
Having been born and raised in Montgomery County, I cherish what makes our community great: excellent schools, vibrant businesses, and outstanding cultural amenities. But — we all know there is always room for improvement. That is my commitment to you!
You can monitor the legislative process through the Maryland General Assembly website or through my social media. I am on Facebook at State Senator Cheryl C. Kagan, on Twitter at @CherylKagan, and now on Instagram at @CherylCKagan.
Cheryl C. Kagan
District 17 (Rockville & Gaithersburg)
We are interviewing for Legislative Interns. The internship, which may include a stipend, provides college/university students and professionals the opportunity to provide research and staff assistance. In addition to practical work experience, college students who qualify may earn academic credits.
The Senator is seeking interns who:
- Have superior writing skills;
- Have excellent attention to detail;
- Possess technology skills (Excel, Word, google Docs, database management, data entry);
- Have the ability to work independently – and as a member of a team;
- Can dress appropriately for an office environment;
- Have the ability to work in Annapolis or in the District; and
- Have the ability to maintain confidentiality and exercise professional judgment.
Many interns are political science majors; however, students working toward degrees in other areas, or professionals who are interested in learning firsthand about the process of State government, are encouraged to apply.
Academic credits are granted to interns by their colleges and universities. Additional academic work may be required by sponsoring professors.
The type of work assigned to interns is legislative, administrative and clerical in nature. Responsibilities may include: conducting research; accompanying the Senator in the District; drafting correspondence; preparing, recording, and reporting testimony; contacting witnesses; attending committee hearings and briefings; and responding to constituent inquiries.
Interns should have their own transportation to and from Annapolis. Free parking is provided at Navy Stadium.
To apply, please send a cover letter and your resume to: Cheryl.Kagan@senate.state.md.us.
If you would like to receive academic credit, please contact your college or university intern coordinator, career counselor, or department dean for special requirements. If you are selected for an interview, you will be contacted by phone or email. Please be sure to proofread your letter and resume. Good luck!
