The jobs aren't decent paying in a paycheck sense. What makes it a good gig are the benefits. Especially so if you have a wife and kids to utilize said perks. Healthcare, vision, dental etc...
Absolutely true. You can go anywhere from there. DC connections in politics are the highest level for future opportunities, even more than business and NYC, on average. Source- I work with former White House and DC politicos. They seem to get # handed to them left and right.

Are you interested in jumping aboard Edumakated? I'm sure the Don could use your cheerleading skills. You've been a solid performance so far.
I would work for any President....It is a hell of an opportunity no matter who is sitting President. Even the worst employee of the worst president seems to land a cushy job at the end...
The toxic environment issue is definitely possible, too. That said, who in their right mind would lay all of that blame on the administration, itself?
Obviously there are mistakes they've made, goes without saying... but the uphill slog against social activist hatred and retaliation young people would have to deal with just for accepting a job there is a major problem. We've seen too many examples of entertainment and media elites threatening lesser peers over visits to the Trump WH, involvement in Trump WH initiatives, hell, even not mocking Trump enough in stand up acts.
If I was a college age kid I'd apply and work there in a heartbeat... but I've never been one to give a rat's ass about the opinions of anyone else, so there's that.

Damn, I hadn't even thought of that, but you're right. This has a net effect of reducing the bloat in government, so I'm a bit irked they're advertising the job fair so much. Starve the beast from the feet up, ya?
When I was in college, money was an afterthought. Women, experiences, and entertainment were my focal points. I don't doubt all 3 are plentiful in DC.
