Hill Climbers: Staffer Branches Out

Bill Clark/CQ Roll Call
Rory Riley, newly promoted staff director on the House Veterans’ Affairs Subcommittee on Disability Assistance and Memorial Affairs, has worked in all three branches of government to help disabled Americans.

“I’ve worked for all three branches of government … on the same policy issue,” Riley said. “I don’t know a lot of people who can say that.”

For those looking to move up the Capitol Hill ladder, Riley said that a focus just on networking won’t go far enough.

“Everybody’s always emphasizing networking … and even though networking is important — I don’t want to say that it’s not — if you work really hard and your résumé stands out, there will be plenty of opportunities available,” Riley said.
