One office suggests that part of the problem is that Senators are just busy people. A spokesman for Conrad told Roll Call that “given the marathon budget negotiations and record flooding in North Dakota, Sen. Conrad requested and received an extension.”
Roll Call has launched a new feature, Hill Navigator, to advise congressional staffers and would-be staffers on how to manage workplace issues on Capitol Hill. Please send us your questions anything from office etiquette, to handling awkward moments, to what happens when the work life gets too personal. Submissions will be treated anonymously.
