Interns in Congressman Tierney’s office are college students and high school seniors who gain valuable experience by working part or full time in either the Washington, DC, Peabody or Lynn offices. These students are immersed in all aspects of the office, including constituent service, correspondence and research. Accordingly, interns are expected to have strong communications skills, be organized and work well in a team environment.

Preference is given to residents of the Sixth District or those attending colleges or universities within the District.
