Beginning a New Adventure in DC!

Hi everyone!My name is Zack and I'm a recent WU graduate moving to Washington DC! I've spent the last 8 months interning for Senator Arnie Roblan and I'm hoping to continue work related within a political environment. I also want to throw myself into an entirely new environment because I ultimately thrive in a place where no two days are the same.I would greatly appreciate any advice from those with connections to DC in addition to experience that I could speak with over the phone or meet in person. A little about myself...I'm willing to take any job that will help pay my rent and bills even if it's unrelated to politics. I don't expect to land anything soon, but would love the opportunity for a paid position related to canvassing or field organizing - just for that experience alone. Where I may lack in experience, I make up for in a resolve to learn, make mistakes, ask questions, and work as a team.I would be happy to share my resume and CV letters for editing, critiquing, or any advice one can offer on improving both.Thank you for your time and I look forward to any advice.Zack
