The Politico wrote a great piece on finding Hill Jobs.
But if you want to actually land the job, you’ll almost certainly have to subscribe to one of the unofficial e-mail vacancy lists run by staffers themselves.
“You have to know of these e-mail lists to know where the positions are on the Hill,” said one former Democratic legislative assistant. “They’re not posted anywhere in the public sphere. When you get to D.C., you have to have these lists to find a vacancy on the Hill.”
At least a half-dozen House staffers maintain e-mail lists to which they send vacancy announcements. The e-mails, with hundreds or, in one case, nearly 2,000, subscribers, are sent weekly, daily or as soon as the listserv owner hears about a job.
Our job board has many job posts for campaign-centric jobs (we do accept jobs from official offices). One of the ones mentioned in this article is the Tom Manatos list. If you are looking to work on the hill, make sure to sign up!
