“Sen. Leahy's office is a well-oiled machine with a terrific staff and well-developed internship program. From your first day in the office, everyone makes you feel like you're a part of the team—and you really are. In addition to your daily duties, the staff encourages you to get out of the office and attend as many congressional hearings and briefings as possible.”
