The Senate Employment Office maintains a resume bank of individuals seeking Senate employment, and refers candidate resumes to Senate Member and Committee offices upon an office’s request. Most requests originate from a Democratic or Republican Member’s personal office. However, our office also receives the occasional request for resumes to fill non-designated committee positions.
The Senate Resume Bank is a separate and independent resource from the Senate Employment Bulletin. Some Senate offices choose not to advertise vacancies on the bulletin, and may ask the Senate Employment Office for resumes instead. Resume bank registrants who maintain their active status will remain eligible for referral during the current quarter.
The original Senate Resume Bank will be phased out gradually by June 30, 2023. Although active accounts created prior to April 1, 2023, will remain eligible for referral until the end of June, we encourage you to complete the new application at your earliest convenience. You may be prompted to create new credentials to access the new application in our Office Application Manager (OAM).
We welcome anyone eligible for Senate employment to register. Because Senate offices request resumes to fill an immediate vacancy, resume bank registrants should be available for employment within approximately one month of their registration.
Yes. The Senate Resume Bank is now open to current undergraduate, graduate, and professional students. However, please be aware that these programs are run individually though each Member or Committee office. The Senate Employment Office refers candidates upon an office’s request, and only refers individuals to paid opportunities. For more information about Senate internships, clerkships, or fellowships, please read Senate Internship FAQs.
Registration is simple. Log in or create new credentials to access the resume bank application in our Office Application Manager (OAM). Upload your resume and complete the questionnaire to indicate your job preferences. You will receive an email confirming your submission.
Every quarter, the Senate Employment Office will unlock your account and send an email reminding you to log in and resubmit the questionnaire. This action will keep your account active for referral and ensures your information is up to date. The quarters are as follows:
Q1: January 1 – March 31
Q2: April 1 – June 30
Q3: July 1 – September 30
Q4: October 1 – December 31
Submissions for the 118th Congress Senate Resume Bank will be accepted until December 31, 2024. The resume bank application will reset every two years at the beginning of the new Congress.
If you do not resubmit the questionnaire when prompted, your account will automatically become inactive for the next quarter. However, you may log in at any time in the future to resubmit the questionnaire and make your account active again. Email the Senate Employment Office if you need assistance with unlocking your questionnaire.
If you have found employment or no longer wish to be referred to Senate offices, you may deactivate your account by either 1) removing your resume from your OAM application, or 2) emailing the Senate Employment Office at firstname.lastname@example.org to delete your account.
The Senate Employment Office refers candidate resumes when Senate offices request them. Because our office maintains strict confidentiality with Senate employers, we cannot disclose information pertaining to the vacancies or the referral of applicants. If a Senate office is interested in your application, they will reach out to you directly.
If you are a current Senate employee, your resume will NOT be shared with your employer.
