Governor's Internship Program

Join our team and help build a better Oregon!

The Governor's Office Internship Program offers a variety of opportunities for you to gain academic and professional experience in a dynamic environment at the State Capitol in Salem, Oregon. We want our interns to gain a unique glimpse into the inner workings of state government and contribute to improving the State of Oregon. 

You will receive exposure to the day-to-day operations of the Governor's Office, including but not limited to: researching issues important to Oregonians, gathering opinions and taking concerns from constituents, and collaborating with staff toward creating efficient operations.

If you are passionate about public service, are looking to volunteer your time toward enriching your education and Oregon, and are available to work from our Salem office, we want to hear from you.

​​​To apply, send your cover letter and resume to Public Affairs Specialist Janet Soto:
