Allison Primack started the topic Millennial Monday: What brought you to public service? in the forum Career Advancement 8 years, 9 months ago
Jon Kuhl, a blog contributor for the National Conference of State Legislatures, covered a panel of young state legislators and legislative staffers last month. Kuhl profiles the moderator, John Celok, who recently wrote a book entitled “The Next Generation: Young Elected Officials and Their Impact on American Politics” where he outlines the following four “starting points” for a successful young career in public service:
1. People who want to make politics their career.
2. People who begin their careers as legislative staffers.
3. Having a parent who is a politician.
4. People who are motivated by idealism.
Did you start your career coming down one of these paths? Or did you have a different experience?
