Congressional Aides

Exploring This Job

An extremely valuable—but highly competitive—learning opportunity is to work as a page. Pages serve members of the Senate (the House of Representatives closed its program in 2011). According to the U.S. Senate's page Web site, "Senate page duties consist primarily of delivery of correspondence and legislative material within the Congressional complex. Other duties include preparing the chamber for Senate sessions, and carrying bills and amendments to the desk. Pages attend classes in the early morning at the United States Senate Page School." The length of a page's service varies from one summer to one year. Applicants must be high school juniors and at least 16 years old. Contact your state's senators for an application.
