Congressman Earl Blumenauer’s District Office in Portland

Interns in the District Office quickly become an important part of the team. They welcome college students with a wide range of interest areas, most notably in political science, public administration, environmental studies, urban planning, social work, and the humanities.

A great deal of the position involves interacting with constituents, whether in person, on the phone, or through written correspondence. Therefore, the position requires excellent communication skills, verbally and in writing, a courteous and attentive manner, and a commitment to providing constituents with quality service. As interns may be facilitating solutions on behalf of constituents before federal agencies or other organizations, they should also have effective and considerate problem solving skills.
To apply for the Winter Semester Internship, please email Mariah Wildgen at with an attached cover letter and resume.

(In the body of the message they should indicate the dates they will be available, what type of schedule they would like to work, and whether they will be seeking academic credit)

General Internships with OPB Broadcasting

OPB Music

Daniela Jimenez ’14 was an intern at OPB Music and shares her experience here:

My internship at opbmusic has me joining their team in as full of a capacity as possible, as they provide coverage of live events in Portland that may include anything from concerts to cultural events to films about music. My work includes documenting this coverage on the website, as well as on their facebook and twitter feed. I work in various aspects of digital music production, specifically working to transfer the music library from cd format into a digital database that will be archived by genre, artist and number of plays. I will also be on-call as an assistant for any live video shoots of bands or other programs that OPB covers. Through my experience, I aim to learn how to create an archive using the information that I am exposed to regarding music in Portland and on the web in the form of an online portfolio/blog. The long-term goal of my internship is to provide organized information for any future historians who might wish to learn more about the changing nature of the music industry in a technological age. My archive will be made up of the blog posts, photos and videos that I produce for regarding online and worldwide music news. I will also include in my archive the writing and mixed media that I produce as they relate to my own personal experience within a public broadcasting organization.
