With the election now safely in the rearview mirror and the assurance of at least another two years at the helm of the legislature’s upper chamber, state Senate Republicans are hiring. As the majority party in their chamber, they get more staffers than the minority. The positions up for grabs:

Policy Analyst
The Policy Analyst is responsible for tracking and providing concise, factual, and timely information on legislation moving through the Senate. For more information please click here.

Executive Assistant to the Majority Leader
The Executive Assistant is responsible for managing the fast paced day-to-day operations of the Senate Majority Leader’s office. We are seeking an energetic, proactive, quick-thinking individual who is a problem solver and has strong attention to detail. For more information please click here.

Serving on legislative staff can be a dizzying rush during the fever pitch of the January-to-May legislative session. The opportunity also can offer a leg up to bigger and better positions, even providing some ambitious staffers a springboard to elective office. Of course, it also can mean hard work and long hours.

Interested? You know the drill; send your resume, salary requirements and, for the policy-analyst opening, writing samples to Senate Majority Office Chief of Staff Jesse Mallory: Hurry; the 2017 session is just around the corner.
