I enjoyed how willing the staff members in the office were to give career advice and talk candidly about how they ended in the office and their experience working on Capitol Hill. Additionally, the work we did actually felt meaningful and even the more tedious tasks felt like they were worth something.
What I wish was different
Occasionally there were times when no one really had anything for us to do or when the tasks we were given felt very tedious, but by and large, I don't really have any complaints.
I would advise anybody doing something similar to definitely take advantage of the fact that the staff members are very willing to talk to you. They are very friendly and will look over resumes, give career advice, tell their personal stories, and they even helped refer one of my fellow interns for a job.
