Welcome to Political Job Hunt -- the best place to start your search for a job that makes a real difference.
After 15 years of running Political Wire -- and as a former policy adviser to a U.S. Senator and Governor -- I'm frequently asked for advice from people looking for jobs in politics and public affairs.
How can I get a job on Capitol Hill? What's the best way to become a policy adviser? How do I work on a presidential campaign?
I launched this site to help you find answers to these questions. You'll also find the latest listings of jobs in politics, public policy and government affairs. You'll get tips to guide your job search. You can even sign up for email job alerts.
The eBook, Political Job Hunt: An Insider's Guide to Finding a Job That Makes a Difference, contains 236 pages of tips to help you find that perfect political job!
Working in politics and government is one of the most rewarding career choices you can make. Whether as a legislative analyst or a political affairs officer or a campaign staffer, you really can make a difference.
