A premier legislative tracking and reporting company in Oklahoma politics, JRLR is currently seeking interns for the spring 2017 semester and legislative session. This is a valuable opportunity for students interested in politics, public policy or journalism. Students would assist the Journal Record with tracking bills, covering committee meetings, and observing the House and Senate floors in the spring. Past interns have received job offers at the Journal Record but also have gone on to work on campaigns in the Oklahoma legislature, lobbyist firms, and Washington D.C. This is a paid position and JRLR is more than willing to work with student’s schedules.
