    I have been working at U.S. Senate full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great work-life balance, great place to develop professionally and personally, and pretty solid benefits (transportation stipend & loan repayment options).

    Cons

    Salary would definitely be a con. You will not be making as much as your equally talented peers in the private sector.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at U.S. Senate.

    Interview Details

    I learned of an opportunity in the district office through my university and sent an email with a cover letter/resume. A couple of weeks later I was contacted to scheduled an in-person interview. The interview was in the district office and required me to answer questions by a panel of three current employees. I was then asked to draft a response to a hypothetical letter from a constituent. It was only about a week before the office called and offered me the position.

    Interview Questions
    • "How would you handle a call from an irate constituent?"   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I didn't think to negotiate, as this was my first job out of college. I get the impression there is an opportunity to negotiate a salary, but it depends on the individual office's budget.
