What to Avoid
- 1.You’re a Republican mole. Go away, mole.
- 2.You want to be famous. When you work on a campaign, the candidate is paramount. When you work at an advocacy organization, the issue is paramount. You don’t matter, and you may never receive the credit or pay you deserve.
- 3.You want a relaxed job that pays well. Working in politics will involve long hours and low pay. You should be prepared for a stressful, fast-paced environment. It will be awesome--but it will be hard.
