10. All About Congress with Congressional Staffer Allison Feikes
In this episode of the podcast, Mackenzie sits down to chat with congressional policy advisor/legislative assistant Allison Feikes. You may know Allison from her social media ventures such as TikTok, but Allison gives us a great inside look at what goes on in congress, and all sorts of ways that members of the community can stay involved and active in government. Allison and Mackenzie talk about getting a job on the hill, funny congress traditions, how things in congress change due to elections, and the hardest and best parts of the job.

Everything posted was very reasonable. However, consider
this, suppose you were to write a killer headline? I mean,
I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, but what if you added a title
that makes people desire more? I mean 10. All About Congress
with Congressional Staffer Allison Feikes ~ The Fascinating Jobs Podcast is kinda vanilla.
You could look at Yahoo’s home page and note how
they write article headlines to grab people interested.
You might add a related video or a picture or two
to get readers interested about what you’ve got to say.
Just my opinion, it would bring your website a little livelier.
