The fellow would work directly with the legislative staff and develop the capabilities to handle his or her own legislative portfolio. The fellow is treated as a full staff member and will: brief the Congressman, staff him at hearings, write speeches and remarks, provide vote recommendations, and draft legislation. The office is extremely busy with no shortage of work. Several fellows have already had a great experience with us. We ask for at least a 6 month commitment (ideally more) from the fellow, though unfortunately we are not in a position to offer any monetary compensation. However we can offer a very rewarding and educational experience that goes well beyond most fellowships and a great chance to gain a foothold on Capitol Hill. If you are someone who is a strong writer, has some policy experience, is easy going, and enjoys working in tight corridors, please send your cover letter, resume, and 3 references to firstname.lastname@example.org .
