A thorough understanding of the government and how it works is
important to anyone working for a member of Congress. You should
take courses in U.S. government, political science, civics, social
studies, and history, and get involved in school government and
school committees. Attend formal meetings of various school clubs
to learn about parliamentary procedure. Writing press releases and
letters, and researching current issues are important aspects of
congressional work. Taking journalism, English, and speech
classes and reporting for your school newspaper will develop these
communication skills. Taking a foreign language such as Spanish
would also be good idea since many members of Congress represent
people who do not speak English as their first language.
