This July, Martin Quigley ’13 will begin working in Senator Carl Levin’s (D-MI) Washington, D.C., office as a legislative intern. As a media and society major and political science/sociology minor, he did some personal research to find senators with whom he was familiar and applied to internships with their offices. Quigley then utilized the Salisbury Center for Career Services and Professional Development to help perfect his resume; he also talked to them about working in Washington, D.C., to better understand what it would be like.
“I think that simply being immersed in the Capitol of the United States will open my eyes to a lot of the inner workings of our government that I may not be able to divulge through research or watching the news,” says Quigley as he looks forward to the start of the internship.
On the HWS campus, Quigley is currently in charge of HWS Live and works for the Centennial Center for Leadership. He has also participated in many clubs such as the HWS ski team, college jazz guitar ensemble, and HWS Votes, a club devoted to showing the student body how important it is to be an active participant in the political system.
