Fast-paced, exciting, usually temporary
Policy Analyst (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – October 6, 2017
Most jobs in the legislature only exist for 140 days every two years, but it's an incredible 140 days. It is a true test in prioritization and multitasking; you have to be ready for anything and need to keep up with what's happening on the House or Senate floor, as you juggle constituent services and policy analysis. It's an incredible learning opportunity, but you have to be careful not to fall behind. It can be overwhelming, but it's easier if you're on a good team. I wish everyone could work here for one session.
Some free lunches, learning opportunities, job satisfaction
Long days/nights, few breaks, intense pace and pressure
