NTRA announces Washington DC internship program

The National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA) is seeking highly motivated current students or recent graduates for its internship program in Washington, D.C.

The NTRA’s new Washington office is located on Capitol Hill under the operation of former U.S. Congressman Tom Rooney, the President and CEO of the NTRA.

“With the new Congress in January and everything in Washington reopening after COVID, we are very eager to welcome interns into our D.C. office,” Rooney said. “The dynamic work environment of Capitol Hill is great for young people, and we hope to bring students with an interest in Thoroughbred racing and government affairs onto our team. One of my favorite things about being a Congressman was helping bring young people to D.C. and showing them how it works, and it is our hope that our internship program can do just that.”

Qualifications include but aren’t limited to strong written and oral communication skills, the ability to take direction, learn and work independently and proactively, strong attention to detail and organizational skills and a team member mentality.
