Meeting with Congressman Connie Mack's Staff - July 8th

Meeting with Congressman Connie Mack’s legislative assistants was an interesting opportunity. Though we couldn’t speak directly with the Congressman, his assistants were extremely knowledgeable. My fellow interns and I asked questions ranging from CAFTA to Immigration. The assistants informed us of the Congressman’s position on the different issues, and then made predictions of how upcoming votes would turn out. At one point, the conversation even turned to the approaching college football season! The Congressman’s staffers wrapped things up by giving us some valuable information for getting jobs on the Hill. They echoed a common D.C. theme: "it’s all about networking."
