I worked at NY State Senate part-time (More than 3 years)
good working experience
hands on learning
dealing with angry or rude constituents almost daily
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at NY State Senate (Albany, NY).
Over the phone, about half hour. Spoke to Director and assistant over the phone. I can't really recount all the questions, but it was generally about why I wanted to get into state legislative work.
