Jobs open in Don Young’s D.C. and Anchorage offices

Congressman Don Young has two job openings — one in his DC and one in his Anchorage office:

Special Assistant – Anchorage

The special assistant monitors and updates our state director and me on state and local issues. This position acts as my liaison to federal, state, and local agencies, and answers casework correspondence and communications with constituents.

Duties include, but are not limited to, handling constituent casework assignments, assessing issues on the ground that may require legislative action, acting as Young’s proxy at meetings when he is voting in D.C., and compiling and delivering constituent opinions on items before Congress.

The ideal candidate works well under pressure, is willing to work with a flexible schedule that may include nights and weekends, and can grow and maintain relationships with community members and stakeholders in Alaska.

Strong oral and written communication skills, knowledge of Alaska and its culture, a grasp of the legislative process, understanding of local and state issues, and a level temperament are required. Given the range of casework and his office’s commitment to privacy, applicants must be able to maintain confidentiality and exercise discretion.

Travel of up to 10% may be required, and applicants must hold a valid driver’s license.

Legislative Correspondent – Washington, D.C.

Responsibilities include answering phones, overseeing constituent communications, managing all incoming and outgoing mail, processing flag and tour requests, supervising the interns’ day-to-day tasks, drafting legislative and non-legislative letters, and other duties as assigned. Candidates must be able to set and meet deadlines, work well in a team environment, and occasionally work outside of standard business hours, including nights and weekends. Alaska ties are preferred but not required. 

To apply, send a resume and cover letter to [email protected]with “Anchorage Special Assistant” in the subject line.

Latest comments

  • Only Democrat need apply

  • Might just apply for the job just to be exempt from vax mandates

  • Who would work with such a traitor?

  • Why does Don Young even have openings? What an honor it would be to work for him! And a great step in a possible career ladder. I’m not looking – I’m getting ready to retire, can’t stand D.C., and my wife doesn’t want me to…

    • Hope it’s a very short term position. About two years and done.

  • Hell fire? Sign me up!

  • Maybe Hot Mess could apply.

  • A pre-employment covid vax mandate from Don Young’s office? The ad says he’d be happy hiring someone who has no ties to Alaska! Next thing you know, he’ll have a Californian helping him represent Alaska. What happened to our tough, brash freedom and liberty loving Alaska-first Congressman? Perhaps he has had one too many beers with Pelosi?

  • It is a very historic time in history of which to be a part. Things will be changing. Hope government can become smaller as the entire republic returns to the US Constitution.

  • This will probably be deleted by Sue. It won’t be the first time. She doesn’t like truth. Who would want to work for the corrupt RINO? He just sold us down the river to socialism.

      • Don Young’s OWN position is open too. Michael Tavoliero would be the perfect replacement.

  • Can’t pay me enough to work for this traitor to the American people.
