Don't forget to apply for Administration jobs

Posted By Nikki Enfield, Tuesday, December 2, 2008

I should have posted these sooner, but here are a couple of good posts from around the web about working for President-elect Obama and the new administration.  I highly recommend sending your resume in at

First, aaronsw at Open Left:

"I got my Obama job application form in the (e)mail today. And I wanted to encourage everyone else to get theirs by filling out this simple form. (In a few days they'll email you a longer form, with spaces for more jobs and a choice of which agencies you're interested in, but that's also pretty easy.)...
"...Obviously having people outside the government pushing back is crucial, but it would also be nice to see those right-wing hacks replaced with a talented lefty team. So consider filling out an Obama application. Although do be warned -- as the site says, "some positions will require Senate confirmation."

And also check out 'How to get an Obama staff job" at Politico:

"I believe that politics is truly a merit-based world," he told High Country News magazine in August. "If you work hard and you're honest — and you keep winning — you'll get to rise. [In my early political jobs,] I was the kid who was the first in the office and the last to leave. And it's still kind of true. ... I've been chief of staff to three famous members of Congress and I work for a fourth, and when [each] hired me, I don't think any of them even asked me where I went to school — they just asked me what I had done, and I love that."

Even while your searching for the next job - make sure your fill out an application at

And make sure you let us know where you end up!
