State Representative Marilyn Slaby (R-Copley) today announced that the Ohio Legislative Service Commission is accepting applications for its 13-month Legislative and Telecommunications Fellowship Program. The Commission will hire 24 fellows to work with members of the Ohio General Assembly during 2017.


“This is an excellent opportunity for graduates to get a foot in the door into the political world,” said Rep. Slaby. “The experiences and connections are invaluable, and this can provide an excellent stepping stone to a lifelong career serving the people of the state of Ohio. I would encourage all interested to apply for this prestigious fellowship.”


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


Fellows receive full State of Ohio employee benefits and are paid $31,200 annually, with the opportunity to earn a $2,000 bonus upon completion of the program. 
               
Legislative fellowship applications must be postmarked by April 1, 2016 to be considered for the program.  The application deadline for the two telecommunications positions is April 30, 2016.  All applicants must have completed a bachelor’s degree program by the December start date. Persons holding graduate or professional degrees may also apply.


The legislative fellowship 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. The two telecommunications fellows must have majored or minored in a telecommunications-related field of study or have comparable experience.


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 by visiting www.lsc.ohio.gov/fellowship.
