Internship available immediately

Internship available immediately, spring 2016, Senator Charles Schumer

Dr. Paula Kot, English Department Chair, received exciting news from Jordan W. Nicholson, who is WNY Deputy Regional Director for U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer.

Two interns in Buffalo have departed (to take other positions). Two internships are open immediately for spring 2016!

The application process, writes Nicholson, will be shortened—send an email with contact information to Jordan_Nicholson@schumer.senate.gov. Full contact information:
Jordan W. Nicholson
WNY Deputy Regional Director
U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer
130 S. Elmwood Ave, Suite 660
Buffalo, NY 14202

Although only an email is requested, a word to the wise: at least check out http://www.schumer.senate.gov/, which has a tab at the top of the page titled “students,” and information about internships—including an application. (Click through to “internships,” and then scroll down to find “Buffalo office/state applicants.)
  • Hours: 4-hour shifts (9 a.m. to 1 p.m. – 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.)
  • Three shifts per week—flexibility for schedule conflicts
  • Duties: Answer phone; sort constituent mail; help generate action ideas, press statements and plan Sen. Schumer’s regional visits
  • More perks: Can lead to bigger & better – these openings exist because one of the interns who left was hired as a full-time staffer, and the other accepted a White House internship
