Working in the legislature.
The Ohio Senate offers several opportunities to college students and young professionals interested in a career in public service.
The Ohio Senate Page Program

The Ohio Senate Page Program provides college students the opportunity to observe and take part in the legislative process.

Page duties vary, but consist of performing errands on the floor of the Senate and during committee meetings. Pages also provide administrative and constituent service functions in Senate offices, the Senate Clerk’s office, and the Majority and Minority caucus offices. Positions are part-time and may lead to full-time opportunities.

Fun fact: Page alumni include members of the Ohio Senate, including current Senate President Larry Obhof, members of Congress, current and former Senate Chiefs-of-Staff, Clerks and Senior Policy Directors.

To apply for a page position with the Ohio Senate, email a cover letter and resume with your contact information to PageProgram@ohiosenate.gov.
The LSC Fellowship Program


The Legislative Service Commission Fellowship Program is a prestigious paid internship offered in the Ohio Senate, the Ohio House and with Ohio Government Television.

The program is designed to provide college graduates with practical experience in the legislative process. Fellows gain real-world knowledge of the inner workings of state government and often find permanent employment opportunities in the legislature, state government or elsewhere around Capitol Square.

Fun fact: The current Governor of Ohio began his legislative career as an LSC Fellow.

Find more information and an application for the program on the Legislative Service Commission website.
