Washington, DC

This week I worked a lot on business development. I looked into various new pieces of legislation and how they could hurt or benefit potential parties.

Learning the Art of Lobbying in Washington, DC

Upon completing my first week as an intern at Chamber Hill Strategies, I have come to the realization that Washington D.C. is extremely up tempo when compared to basically everywhere else I have ever lived. D.C. is an information super highway: there are endless new things to learn about policy, politics, and lobbying. With that being said, I spent a good portion of this week getting brought up to speed with the help of many of my co-workers.
