Former Reporter at CQ Roll Call

When Congress is in session, you are at the Capitol with them: meeting with staff, covering hearings, staking out members in the hallways as they meet privately and vote, asking members questions and putting everything you've gathered together for a story. You don't necessarily write a story every day, but you can when a committee or leadership are really focused on the issues you cover. When Congress isn't in session, the pace slows down somewhat, but you will still be working the phones from the office, meeting with sources, and if you have a subject area that you cover, you'll be monitoring federal agencies for news.
