This kind of cracked me up.
I still get emails from some job-posting services from way back when I got laid off, all those years ago. They are occasionally interesting, even entertaining.
But I don’t recall ever hearing from this one before. And weirdly, it came in on my ADCO email address rather than my personal one.
And as I said, it drew a smile. Yeah, Bernie, you’d better be paying that intern $15 an hour!
In case you’re interested, here’s the job description:
Senator Sanders is seeking a full-time legislative intern for the fall and spring semesters in his Washington, D.C. office, starting immediately. Interns serve a valuable role in the office assisting in legislative and administrative tasks while gaining insight into the inner workings of the Senate. Responsibilities include assisting staff with constituent phone calls and requests, processing messages, attending briefings and committee hearings, conducting research and drafting memos, leading U.S. Capitol tours and providing responses to constituent letters and inquiries. Interns are paid $15/hr. Those with Vermont ties or a demonstrated interest in progressive politics are a plus. The office is seeking a diverse pool of applicants. As such, all prospective applicants are encouraged to apply.
I suppose it could be educational, and look good on a resume (especially if your prospective future employer is a socialist), but really, don’t count on getting much face time with the boss — he’s planning on being out of the office a lot over the next couple of semesters…
