The main mission of the program is placement. Our hope is that after our interns leave the program they are prepared to step right into a Staff Assistant or maybe even a Legislative Correspondent position on Capitol Hill. If you are a student or recent graduate and think you would benefit from this opportunity please email your resume and cover letter to this address.
