Congrats, you’ve made it to Capitol Hill! Everyone in your hometown is so proud of you for scoring a job working near POTUS and SCOTUS.

*Cue the oohs and aahs.*

You’ve updated your résumé (yes, you use the fancy accents now) and you can’t wait to pass out your new business cards with that nice golden eagle crest. All is going well until you start answering calls, connecting them to the wrong lines and quickly realize you’re at the bottom of the food chain.

You continue chugging along, looking for that promotion, which finally comes three months later, but isn’t as awesome as you’d imagined. Finally, you’ve come to understand why there’s no glamorous TV show about Capitol Hill staffers.
