NMFI InternshipsThe Nels Mitchell for Idaho U.S. Senate campaign would like to invite college and university level students to apply for an exciting internship opportunity with the campaign for the summer and/or fall months of 2014.

Interns will work under the direct supervision of an experienced senior staff member, and  intern supervisors will work closely with each student’s college or university to ensure that all administrative requirements for available academic credit are met.

Most interns will be assigned to work in Boise; however, some interns may be offered the opportunity to work elsewhere.  Because our internships will be unpaid, the campaign will attempt to procure suitable free-of-charge housing arrangements for interns who will be visiting Boise from elsewhere.
