Good fun teaching up the 3rd cohort of Ohio University‘s National Capital Interns during the first week of the semester. We get in our steps as we range all over DC before they start their Capitol Hill placements. Great to be able to share some lessons from nearly 30 years working in Washington. Best part is connecting them with friends, colleagues, and OU Bobcat alums around town. Folks are so generous sharing insights, often I think because it reminds them of that feeling of wonder they had with their first jobs in DC. H/t to Steven Richardson, one of those OU alums who snapped this picture from the Library of Congress.
