WEISSPORT – Local college students and graduating high school seniors with an interest in state government are encouraged to apply for unpaid internships for the summer or fall semesters at Rep. Doyle Heffley’s (R-Carbon) district offices in Weissport and Albrightsville.

“These internships provide students the opportunity to learn more about state government, the legislative process and the responsibilities of a Pennsylvania state representative,” said Heffley. “They will get a hands-on learning experience that cannot be taught through a textbook.

The ideal candidates will be motivated, detail oriented and able to multitask, possess excellent communication skills and interact well with constituents. Interns can expect to perform a wide variety of duties including, answering the phone, assisting with constituent casework, drafting correspondence, and planning and attending community events.

Applicants must be Carbon County residents. Resumes may be emailed to with “Summer Internship Applicant” listed in the subject line, or mailed to Heffley’s district office at 204B Bridge St., Weissport, PA 18235.

For more information regarding this internship program, call (610) 377-6363.
