Intern Spotlight: Cory Pope
Cory Pope will be interning through the Georgia Legislative Internship Program next semester.
What is the GLIP?
For over 40 years, Georgia colleges and universities have been providing the General Assembly with outstanding interns each session. During this internship, approximately 35 interns will receive firsthand experience of the legislative process.
Once students are selected for the internship, they are assigned to offices in the Georgia House of Representatives or the Georgia State Senate. Each intern will serve a unique purpose in the process and have a multitude of different tasks to perform each day that may include legislative tracking, constituent services, media assistance, attendance at committee meetings, writing bill summaries and so much more. During their time at the State Capitol, interns will gain knowledge of how state government works, how the legislative process works, along with making lifelong career contacts and friendships.
What will you be doing?
As a member of the Georgia Legislative Internship Program, I will be working directly with legislators in the Georgia General Assembly. I will most likely be assigned to a committee in either the House or the Senate, but I could also be an intern for an individual legislator or staffer. I will not know exactly what my role as an intern will be until December (when I have a placement interview), but much of my job will consist of conducting research for potential legislation or previous legislation.
The internship is full-time for the Spring semester, so I will get a break from classes as well as a taste of the real world. I am very excited about this amazing opportunity to connect with legislators, experience the legislative process firsthand, and affect the lives of Georgia citizens in a positive way.
