State Ties and Political Preference

Due to the unique nature of the Senate, it is important to consider your state ties and political preference when applying. Senate staff are representatives of their office, so hiring managers often look for applicants who exemplify the political and ideological interests of their Member.
 
Additionally, Senate hiring managers may consider your state or regional connections, especially when filling entry-level positions. Your strongest state ties may include places where you have lived, studied, worked, or were stationed while in the military. Please note that state ties are often preferred, and may not be a requirement.
