Qualified candidates for this position will have a minimum of one year of experience working in federal legislative and public policy roles.  Relevant experience might include staff work in Congress, for a corporation or association in general government affairs.  Ideal candidates will likely have relevant substantive experience in one or more of the following policy sectors: energy, technology/communications, trade, tax, financial services, insurance, or healthcare.  All applicants should have a four-year degree, excellent academic credentials and references.
