As we first noted in mid-November, we can no longer find direct links to jobs & internships on Capitol Hill (they’ve changed the link structure in some fashion that means we can no longer just “add one” to the most recent URLs to get the latest ones), but we have stumbled onto a source for jobs on the Democratic side of the aisle via the Office of the Whip – beyond that, we suggest signing up for the email-based House Employment Bulletin and checking out the online Senate Employment Bulletin.  If anyone can find the new direct links or has other Hill job resources to share, please pass them along.
