Meet: Zohar

Mayor Bloomberg and Zohar
With the upcoming elections for mayor in New York City, the atmosphere in the City is heated with political ambition. Fortunately, I had the opportunity to work and experience the political realm in New York City with Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and his staff this past summer. Working in and out of City Hall on a daily basis, attending important press conferences, interacting with the Mayor's press officers, and researching topics in public policy have given me a close understanding of why New York City stands as one of the greatest city in the world.

Many times my day at Mayor Bloomberg's Research Office began at 6 am. I would prepare a press digest for the Mayor and his chief staff that contained articles about the Mayor from regional and national newspapers. I would act as an aide to the Mayor and his staff with other digests, research, and analysis operations. Researching and preparing the Mayor's communication tactics and analysis' really stimulated my interest in pursing a career in government.

Aside from the important day-to-day responsibilities for the Mayor, his office provided me with future contacts and guidance for my career. The Director of the Research Office, Owen Stone (a UAlbany graduate) gave me the confidence and assurance to help me pursue a governmental job.

Working at the Mayor's Research Office was an unforgettable and inspiring internship. The duties that I performed and connections I made were an incredible stepping-stone for my career.

Zohar is a UAlbany junior majoring in American history.
