Messenger (Former Employee), Harrisburg, PAJanuary 19, 2015
A typical day would be to deliver newspapers and mail runs. Also, any errands that the Representatives needed complete would be passed to the messengers. All tasks needed to be completed in a timely, professional manner.

District Director (Current Employee), Baltimore, MDDecember 28, 2014
Pros: serving people
Cons: serving people
You can count on starting every day with a challenge and ending every day with a laundry list of more to do. I have learned that I know very little as compared to what I am asked to do daily. I have also learned that a dedicated, compassionate, selfless staff is a must if you are going to survive to fight another day.

Extremely productive workplace.
Congressional Intern (Current Employee), El Cajon, CAOctober 15, 2014
Pros: opportunities to meet with municipal leaders and their staff.
This is a fast paced environment with a steep learning curve. Correspondence with constituents is the highest priority and taken with extreme detail. This job offers education in the legislative process in it's entirety. The ability to converse with many of the federal agencies and their staff proves invaluable experience. Communication skills are imperative when working with others on the team. Knowing each and everyday that one phone call or letter can change the course of society gives self satisfaction.

We properly Implemented our Livelihood Program in the communitiesm
Livelihood Program Implementor (Former Employee), San Jose, P03October 3, 2014
Pros: every time we visit the barangays they normally prepared free food for us.
Cons: sometimes we work up to 12 hours if necessary.
From Monday to Saturday, i used to come to office as early 8:30am 5:00pm then check the schedules which Barangay should be given a priority for the said livelihood project and visit the Barangays open time to know their problems and needs for the program i used to coordinate with the Barangay captain as a head in the community so that i will be guided properly, I enjoyed most of my work since even in college I've been in the grassroots communities as one of training. My co-worker was very cooperative as well as my Boss. A hardest part when Typhoon destroyed some of grafted Manggo tress and we have to replenish the Manggo seedlings. as the years goes by we saw the fruit of our labor when the started harvesting their Manggo fruits.

Highly Professional and highly rewarding
Legislative Intern (Former Employee), Lansing, MIMay 29, 2014
Pros: great connections, learned the intricacies of state government
Cons: high level of stress, unpaid
My job at the House of Representatives was to adhere to constituent inquiries and discuss policies with my legislator.

I not only represented myself and my office, but I represented 78,000 constiuents every time I walked into the building. Professionalism was very important.

I enjoyed working on important government policies and it really gave me perspective on how the legislative system works.

It was difficult working with legislators on the other side of the isle, but I learned how to cooperate with officials that did not share the same views as our office.

Intern (Former Employee), Austin, TXAugust 1, 2013
Pros: free food and exposure to new ideas
Cons: unpaid
Tons of people coming and going with great ideas to make the world a better place. I learned that if you ever look around and realize that you are the dumbest person in the room. Don't panic. You have found the right room to be in. I was in charge of managing the correspondence that came into the office through varies media.
