Responsibilities include, but are not limited to, helping prepare daily press clips early in the morning, drafting press releases, managing press lists, creating graphics for social media, drafting social media posts, and assisting communications staffers with media interviews and events. In addition, press interns may be asked to help with a variety of administrative tasks, including answering phones, giving U.S. Capitol tours, as well as assisting staff with legislative research and drafting letters.
