I worked at California State Assembly full-time
Great benefits, enjoyable and meaningful work.
Job security, depending on your district.
I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at California State Assembly (San Ramon, CA) in February 2015.
I reached out to the local office to share my interest in taking on a staff position. After, I sent a resume and cover letter, two months passed and a field representative position opened up. I was contacted to come in for an interview. The interview was about 45 minutes with the state representative and staff member. After a few days, I had a follow-up phone interview (informal) with another staff member and started the position about a week later.
