Where can one find a list of the job vacancies in the House of Representatives?

There's some relevant info here in our Capitol Hill job resources edition - - we are not aware of a House compendium like the excellent Senate employment bulletin - - but you can always take the last House of Reps. job you find here - like this one - and keep adding 1 to the ID# at the end of the link (so ID=1827, ID=1828, etc.) - sometimes they skip a few, so keep trying a few numbers ahead.

Hope that's clear. If anyone knows another source besides the ones here (and in the Cap Hill resources link), let us know.

Be aware that things move so quickly on the Hill that typically by the time a position is posted, it's already been filled or the process is well underway. The single best way to get a Hill job is to already be there (interning if nothing else) or be in very regular contact with people who can put your name in the running.
Certainly the higher-level positions consider outside applicants, but you need to really stand out to get noticed.
