A great site for finding jobs and internships on the hill. Lots of postings you would not normally find on other sites like Indeed or Simply Hired.


Placement of job leads is free. However, if you would like to view your posting on the site, you must register as a member to do so. Only members with active subscriptions can view the job leads. While we are happy to confirm that your job has been posted, we do not provide screenshots or tear sheets to employers. Subscriptions are $16 for the first month, and $6 thereafter. You may cancel your subscription at any time.

Leads remain posted for three months, unless you request that we remove the listing sooner. Send an email to support@traversejobs.com to have your listing removed. Please be sure to include your contact information in the email, including your title.

If you need to edit your posting, please send an email to support@traversejobs.com. We can make minor edits for you. If you have more comprehensive edits, we can delete your old posting and you can resubmit.

Submitted leads must fit one of the job type categories from the pull-down menu below. We reserve the right to use discretion in deciding which submissions to post. His goal is to cut through the clutter and provide leads that meet the needs of his membership. So, for example, a listing for a lifeguard at your local pool will not be posted, but a listing for the director of government relations at the lifeguard trade association will be.

Leads will not appear immediately -- all positions are reviewed before being posted.

*NOTE* Please do not put job titles in ALL CAPS.

Jobs require zero to two years of work experience. Entry-level postings are specifically meant to be for first-time entrants to the full-time job market. Recent college graduates should keep in mind that any job/internship/fellowship experience you have had counts towards experience.

Jobs can start with as few as three years of work experience and go up to about 10 or 15 years, depending on the type of job. This is the broadest job level category and is meant to be for job seekers on the second, third, or even fourth rung of their career ladder.

Jobs generally require a minimum of 8-10 years experience and/or a very specific expertise in a given policy area or work function. They generally report directly to an executive, involve managing staff/budgets/operations, and require a high level of expertise in the organization's mission.

Jobs don't necessarily have specific "years of experience" requirements as much they are meant to convey that you will be the leader of an organization with the presumed qualifications to do so. Executive jobs may also include vice presidents and others who may be considered part of the "executive leadership team" at larger companies.
