COLUMBUS - 

State Representative Andy Thompson (R-Marietta) has announced that the Ohio Legislative Service Commission is accepting applications for its 13-month Legislative and Telecommunications Fellowship Program. The commission, which works closely with the legislative caucuses of the Ohio General Assembly, will hire 20-plus fellows to work with members and staff at the Ohio House of Representatives and Ohio Senate during 2015.


"My first aide, Mike Sabo, was an LSC Fellow from Ashland University, and brought many great insights to his work here from his fellowship,” Rep. Thompson said. “This program is indispensable to the Ohio General Assembly, and thus to the citizens of Ohio."


Legislative fellow duties include assisting members of the Ohio General Assembly with constituent work and communications, doing legislative research, attending meetings, and performing administrative duties. Telecommunications fellows assist in televising House and Senate proceedings and preparing educational video productions about the General Assembly and the legislative process.


The program is open to graduates of all major fields of study who have a genuine interest in learning about state government, and no political experience is required. All applicants must have graduated from a four-year college degree program by the December start date. Those holding graduate or professional degrees are also encouraged to apply.


The fellowships are full-time, paid positions with eligibility for benefits applicable to other state employees. Application materials must be postmarked by April 1, 2014 to be considered for the program. The application deadline for the two telecommunications positions is May 31, 2014.


For more information or for an application and instructions, please contact the fellowship coordinator at the Ohio Legislative Service Commission by calling (614) 466-3615 or visit www.lsc.state.oh.us/fellowship.
