Federal Legislative Affairs Intern

May - August 2018 • Washington, DC

I was able to work in a hands-on environment with a team who has years of experience. It was a great to experience the legislative process from a different angle than that of a government office.

What I wish was different

Honestly I have no complaints.

Make sure your cover letters really stand out.
