PUBLIC SERVICE LEADERSHIP INITIATIVE

Tips for Success as a Political Staffer

Chris Champine


Check your political beliefs at the door.

Build relationships. Get to know people, treat them with respect. All politics is personal.

Don't be afraid to say "I don't know." Your worth depends on trustworthy information.

Follow up with "I'll find out."

Check your ego at the door.

Be OK with working without positive reinforcement.

Go to a Happy Hour. If there isn't one, organize one. They are sources of information.

Go deep into your policy area.

Anytime you are in public, you are representing your boss.
