July 12, 2022 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources

From the Advisor: 

I hope you all had a great 4th of July holiday. Reflecting upon our nation’s birthday, it seems a great time to also chat briefly about some upcoming opportunities on the Hill. 

First in line is looking at Hill internships or campaigns. Since 2022 is a mid-term election year, many campaigns are hard at work trying to get people to show up to vote, and getting the word out about their candidate. In addition to internship opportunities, also be sure to check out opportunities to volunteer or work for campaigns. If you don’t see a candidate who you’d want to work for, know that working for your state Democratic or Republican parties is a great opportunity to gain real-time political connections and skills. By working for or volunteering for your state party, you’ll have the chance to work on races up and down the ballot. When you apply, make sure you are aware of what the hot topics are in your state – not just what is the issue de rigueur at the national level. Here are a couple of links to check out for campaign employment: RNCDNCNRCCDCCCNRSCDSCC

Last, be sure to sign up for your local Republican or Democratic party chapters (or even see if they have a Young Republicans or Young Dems group to join). That is where you can find out about volunteer opportunities, and even paid opportunities. It also helps to be plugged into local policies – with the hopes of volunteering and interning at a national level later on. 

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out and make an appointment

State of the Congress 2022
— Congressional Management Foundation & Partnership for Public ServiceThe “State of the Congress” series is not designed to malign Congress, but to help guide and measure its improvement. Our intention is to provide timeless benchmarks grounded in a significant body of international research that enable Members of Congress, congressional staff, supporting organizations, and the public to understand Congress’ performance in key areas now and over time. We believe strongly that this can lead to conversations and solutions that genuinely improve our democracy. “State of the Congress” offers a new window into the inner-workings of government through benchmarks to measure the keystone institution of our democracy.
