I just wrapped up the fourth week of my internship at Congresswoman Stefanik’s office and it has been an incredible experience so far.
On Capitol Hill, I have learned about the power of networking, especially when it comes to politics. In my office, I have taken time to get to know the other interns both in and outside of the workplace, and my networking skills have grown tremendously. Together with the other seven interns, we have attended conferences, sat in on hearings, and met new people through mutual friends. By these means, I have been able to connect with people who not only work on the Hill but also in other organizations in Washington, D.C.
Additionally, I have been utilizing LinkedIn and Alumni Fire and plan to get together with some alumni over the course of my internship.
Thanks for reading!
