Hear from the interns:
“Working with Congressman Hill’s office has been an experience that I’ll be eternally grateful for. I was introduced to so many ideas and philosophies about the way our nation’s government works, and I gained a kind of knowledge about those topics that only real-world experience can provide. From running co-sponsor sheets from the Longworth House Office Building to the Cannon House Office Building to networking with high-ranking individuals on the Hill, there has never been a dull moment in his office. I’m so humbled to get the chance to do all of this while serving my hometown. I’ve had the time of my life.”
– Zachary Johnson, Fall 2017
“I have never experience anything that compares to working on Capitol Hill and in Congressman Hill’s office. It’s fast-paced and a new experience every day. The opportunity to meet so many remarkable people in Congress is a chance of lifetime. “
– Blake Abston, Spring 2018
“I absolutely loved my time in Congressman Hill’s office this past summer. The people I met and the experiences I had are memories I will carry with me for the rest of my life. I am especially grateful for the Congressman’s staff who truly took the time to get to know me and mentor me. I look forward to continually following the Congressman and the great work he is doing for the people of Arkansas!”
– Nathan Smith, Summer 2017
“Before starting the internship, I never knew what the Congressman did on a day-to-day basis. This internship showed me how hard he really works for the central Arkansas. I enjoyed interacting with constituents and helping them find a solution. This internship showed me that I really want to work for the government after graduation. The internal workings are complex and I was able to see them firsthand.”
