Found this information online while searching about a job in politics....with no experience! HA! I have one of the items on the "useful experience" list. No idea how a person would go about getting a job in politics without an experience...but was just browsing. Anyone who knows me knows I have an interest in politics and that I brainstorm!:)... sooo here is a bit of what I found. I'm open for comments with info... I don't really have any connections as far as government is concerned (but I'm a HUGE fan of Bobby!) ... so if you have a connection... I'd love to have it too!
