    I worked at United States Congress as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Ability to make a lasting impact on constituents and other major players. Awesome way to spend a summer in D.C. and connections are awesome.

    Cons

    Most of the time interns are unpaid. Your experiences will often be dependent on the office you work in. Was lucky enough to be able to have great coworkers around me who wanted to see me succeed.

They asked about my interests in working there and what kind of things I was hoping to accomplish being there. They also asked me for reason I wanted to work for this congressmen and which of his person
