Intern at The White House Office of Management and Budget

The White House Office of Management and Budget is seeking two interns: one for its Legislative Affairs division, and one for its Communications and Strategic Planning division. These internships are open to high-caliber undergraduate students entering their junior or senior year of college, ideally pursuing academic degrees in public policy, political science, economics, communications, or other related fields.


  • OMB Legislative Affairs: OMB’s Office of Legislative Affairs works closely with White House Office of Legislative Affairs, Federal Agency Legislative Affairs offices, and Congressional offices on current legislative issues. The office conveys information and strategies to the Director to inform decisions on Administration policies. The office, in turn, disseminates budget materials, descriptions of relevant concerns, and statements to Congress to communicate the Administration’s positions. The Office of Legislative Affairs also advises the OMB Director and the organization on legislative issues and developments, provides expertise on the congressional budget process, oversees correspondence with the Hill, and manages the clearance and transmittal of the President’s Budget and the Administration’s Statements of Administration Policy.


Legislative Affairs internship duties include monitoring and tracking legislation and committee hearings, processing Congressional correspondence, assisting with hearing prep and presentation materials, delivering reports to Capitol Hill, answering phones, and other tasks as needed.


  • OMB Communications: OMB’s Office of Communications and Strategic Planning is the principal resource of national, regional, and local media organizations for information about the Federal Budget and other areas of OMB responsibility. The office handles all the incoming media inquiries for OMB and works closely with the White House Press Office and OMB Legislative Affairs division to craft messages around Administration policies and convey those messages to the media and general public. The Strategic Planning and Communications Office also advises the OMB Director and the organization on current media stories, upcoming public engagements and manages the clearance and dissemination of press releases.


Communications internship duties include drafting, editing and posting blogs for the OMB website, monitoring incoming media inquiries, creating posts for OMB’s social media accounts, compiling and disseminating daily news clips, processing correspondence, answering phones, and other tasks as needed.


All candidates should be adept in handling a variety of tasks simultaneously, and should feel comfortable working in a fast-paced environment. Interns will be expected to work about 40 hours per week. Although these are unpaid internships, students will be eligible for a full public transportation subsidy.


U.S. Citizenship and successful completion of a background check and drug test are required.


APPLICATION PROCESS: To become a student volunteer, you must be enrolled, no less than half-time, in a recognized educational institution. Half- and full-time status is determined by the recognized educational institution. Interested applicants should submit a resume and cover letter to Daniel_C_Roberts@omb.eop.gov by Friday, October 30th. Applicants are encouraged to apply prior to the deadline. Please indicate in your application which internship position you are interested in.
