Congressional Aides

Members of Congress will continue to hire aides regularly; however, this is not a large employment field. The need for new workers will be steady but limited. Additionally, aides' positions are linked to the success of the Congressman or Congresswoman for whom they work. If their employer is voted out of office, aides also lose their jobs. And, despite the long hours and often low pay, these jobs are prestigious, making competition for them strong.
