Career Opportunities

The office of the Finance Committee Chairman accepts a limited number of internship and law clerk applicants each year. Successful internship applicants serve as associates for the Committee during spring (January-May), summer (May/June-August) and fall (September-December) terms. Law school students serve as law clerks during the same periods. 

The Committee seeks individuals with specific interests in health care, international trade, social security, communications, economic development, oversight, and tax issues.  Associates and law clerks routinely assist with legislative research projects, hearings, and other substantive assignments and administrative tasks. Though no specific major or program is required, a good academic record is a must. Applicants who can work full-time (40 hours/5-days per week) are preferred. 

A limited number of associates and law clerks are selected for each term on a rolling basis; applicants should apply early (three-to-four months before the start date is preferable). Given that Chairman Wyden is from Oregon, current and former Oregon residents are especially encouraged to apply.  Applicants should send a cover letter, resume, writing sample and two references to the following address:
