From POPVOX Foundation:

When we asked intern coordinators what is the most important skill for an intern, one of the top three was ‘making the most of your internship.’ But what does that mean? Panelists including members of the First Branch Intern Project and organizations dedicated to supporting Congressional interns and staff will discuss what it means to be a self-starter in a Congressional office, and how interns can approach this experience as the first step of a rewarding career.
