WASHINGTON, DC — With a fresh batch of lawmakers newly elected and preparing to head to Capitol Hill to continue Congress’ recent trend of inaction, House Democrats are looking for a few good staffers.

And, they announced Wednesday, they will make the process of applying for a low-paying, thankless job a touch easier by moving the résumé process online.

“The résumé bank launched today will allow House Democrats to improve our hiring process and further strengthen our staff diversity,” House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer said in a statement. “It advances our commitment to openness, transparency, and equal opportunity by creating a new way for any citizen to submit a résumé that will be shared with all House Democratic offices, including the large incoming freshmen class.”

Those seeking accolades from the American people need not apply: Last month, Congress’ approval rating topped 20% for the first time in more than a year.
